Several cottonGossypium spp. race stocks have been identified that possess resistance to the boll weevilAnthonomus grandis Boh. because oviposition is decreased. In this work, a number of known cotton constituents that influence stimulation of feeding and attractancy for this insect were found to have little or no influence on oviposition. These include gossypol, β-bis-abolol, caryophyllene, some fatty acids and their methyl esters, some wax esters, flavonoids, condensed tannins, and… CONTINUE READING
