The Open Agriculture Journal 30 Apr 2016 RESEARCH ARTICLE DOI: 10.2174/1874331501610010001

Abstract

The pesticide formulation prepared as "ready to be used plant protection product" on the basis of tobacco oil was created and tested in two years field trials against powdery mildew of wheat (Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici). The results showed strong fungicidal effect without any phytotoxic activities (chemotherapeutic coefficient = 10) onto treated plants. This indicates the future development of this pesticide formulation as effective, natural friendly and cheap product for plant protection, which can be used both in commercial and organic agriculture.

Keywords: Fungicides, natural fungicide, organic agriculture, pesticides, powdery mildew of wheat, tobacco.
