Insecticidal and antifeedant activities of clerodane diterpenoids isolated from the Indian bhant tree, Clerodendron infortunatum, against the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera.
Bottom Line: Compound HD also showed very good antifeedant activity, which did not differ significantly from that of azadirachtin.Insecticidal activity of the isolated compounds was not significant compared to the control condition, even at the highest con-concentrations of the compounds.These results suggest that extracts of C. infortunatum have very good antifeedant effects against H. armigera due to the presence of specific compounds.
