Bio-efficacy of Solanum pseudocapsicum L. (Solanaceae) against Black Cutworm, Agrotis ipsilon Hufnagel (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

A. Jeyasankar, S. Premalatha and Sudha Jancy Rani

Bio-efficacy of hexane, dichloromethane and ethyl acetate leaves and seeds extracts of Solanum pseudocapsicum were studied against black cutworm Agrotis ipsilon to find out their antifeedant, insecticidal and growth regulations activities. Significant antifeedant, insecticidal and growth regulatory activities were noticed on ethyl acetate extracts in seeds. Percentage of deformed larvae, pupae and adults were showed high on seeds extracts. Preliminary phytochemical analysis showed the presence of triterpenoids flovonoids, alkaloids and quinine in both leaves and seeds extracts. This plant can be explored as biopesticidal plant to serve as an alternate control of the management of economically important pest.
