Behavioral and electrophysiological responses of Hylastinus obscurus to volatiles released from the roots of Trifolium pratense L.
TLDR
Root volatiles from field-collected red clover plants, Trifolium pratense L., of five different ages were trapped by solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), identifying ethanol and hexanal compounds that have not previously been reported in T. Pratense.
Biology of Mastrus ridibundus (Gravenhorst), a potential biological control agent for area‐wide management of Cydia pomonella (Linneaus) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
Experiments were carried out to assess important traits of the biology of the parasitoid in relation to its possible use as a biocontrol agent for codling moth, and honey‐fed females lived longer than starved females.
Evaluation of Metarhizium anisopliae var. anisopliae Qu-M845 Isolate to Control Varroa destructor (Acari: Varroidae) in Laboratory and Field Trials
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is possible to develop a biological insecticide based on this isolate to generate an alternative to control V. destructor.
Electrophysiological and behavioral responses of pea weevil Bruchus pisorum L. (Coleóptera: Bruchidae) to volatiles collected from its host Pisum sativum L
TLDR
It was shown that plant volatiles elicited electrophysiological and behavioral responses and that B. pisorum female can discern between phenological stages of P. sativum based on those chemical cues.
Effect of five postemergence herbicides on red clover shoot and root growth in greenhouse studies
TLDR
The results suggest that some herbicides used to protect red clover against weeds may also affectred clover development, increasing its vulnerability to disease.
Domestication in Murtilla (Ugni molinae) Reduced Defensive Flavonol Levels but Increased Resistance against a Native Herbivorous Insect
TLDR
This study demonstrates that domestication in U. molinae reduced the amount of flavonols in leaves as well as the performance and preference of C. rudis, indicating that these compounds stimulate feeding of the native insect herbivore.
BENTAZON-MCPA EFFECT ON Fusarium oxysporum ROOT ROT ON Trifolium pratense IN GREENHOUSE CONDITIONS
TLDR
The results suggest that red clover growth and persistence could be adversely affected by F. oxysporum after bentazon and bentazon/MCPA application.
Volatiles Released From Vaccinium corymbosum Were Attractive to Aegorhinus superciliosus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in an Olfactometric Bioassay
TLDR
A number of compounds are identified with which it is possible to develop a lure for the principal pest of blueberry in southern Chile, which is mediated by volatiles derived from V. corymbosum.
