Effect of ether extracts of the oil from rhizomes of Acorus calamus (L.) and beta -asarone on the larger maize borer Prostephanus truncatus (Horn)

Effect of ether extracts of the oil from rhizomes of Acorus calamus (L.) and beta -asarone on the larger maize borer Prostephanus truncatus (Horn)
An extract of Acorus calamus, and its main ingredient beta -asarone, were tested in the laboratory against the stored products pest Prostephanus truncatus on maize. Treatment of the maize kernels and cobs with vapours was unsuccessful and sometimes led to significant increases in damage and beetle reproduction.
