Organic extracts from mycelium and culture broth of 21 Penicillium isolates have been tested for insecticidal, insect anti-juvenile hormone (anti-JH), and antifungal activities. Culture broth extracts were the most active, mainly against insects; nearly 25% of them have shown high entomotoxicity (100% mortality at 100 microg/cm(2)). A strong in vivo anti-JH activity against Oncopeltus fasciatus Dallas was detected in the culture broth extracts from P. brevicompactum P79 and P88 isolates. The… CONTINUE READING
