Efficacy of flavonoids in controlling Callosobruchus chinensis (L.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae), a post-harvest pest of grain legumes



Efficacy of flavonoids in controlling Callosobruchus chinensis (L.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae), a post-harvest pest of grain legumes



Crop Protection 24(10): 888-893



The effects of partially purified flavonoids obtained from Calotropis procera (Ait.) R. Br. and six standard flavonoids on the adults and eggs of Callosobruchus chinensis (L.), reared on mung beans (Vigna radiata L.), were studied. All flavonoids were toxic to adults and eggs depending on dose and exposure period. Flavonoids obtained from C. procera showed the highest contact toxicity followed by standard quercetin, rutin and quercitrin at 10 mg mL-1 doses in filter paper diffusion assay.
