Project Number: 2092-22000-021-22-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jun 1, 2018
End Date: May 31, 2020
Examine crude plant extracts and targeted chemicals within those extracts for antifeeding activity against potato psyllid and green peach aphid.
Plant species found in earlier work to have strong antifeedant effects for potato psyllid will be extracted in solvent. Crude extracts will then be assayed against the psyllid and green peach aphid to confirm activity. Active extracts will be sent to the endophyte laboratory at Oregon State University to identify chemicals present in active extracts that are not present in inactive extracts. Those chemicals will eventually be assayed against psyllids and aphids to confirm activity.
