Insecticidal and Antifeedant Activities and Chemical Composition of Casimiroa Edulis La Llave & Lex (Rutaceae) Leaf Extract and its Fractions Against Spodoptera Littoralis Larvae

Abstract

Insecticidal and antifeedant activities of acetone extract of Casimiroa edulis (Rutaceae) leaf were screened against 4 instar larvae of Spodoptera littoralis. Crude extract had LC50 value of 79.47μg/cm and SC50 of 88.97 μg/cm. Seven fractions were then collected from the extract by silica gel column chromatography (eluted by different solvent systems). Four… (More)
