The demand for pheromones in agriculture pest management is increasing globally, the surge is attributed to factors such as emphasis on biodegradability, toxin-free inputs for human safety, safety to ecosystem, long-term effect and wide spread area coverage among others. With ecological stability also becoming a matter of increasing concern along with increased agricultural yields and consumer demand for residue free agriculture, this method of pest management can anchor agro-ecological sustainability with higher crop yield.
FLYBAN: a proprietary Cue lure ofAgferm Innovations suitable against dipteran fruit flies
Insects make vital decisions in selection of food, oviposition sites through pre-constructed recognition templates which are innate or acquired through learning and experience.
A behaviour that is more often explored in development of pest control strategies in various insect is oviposition site-selection by insects.
Oviposition site selection in insects is assisted by a plethora of site-specific cues. This crucial behaviours become innate, are embedded into the genome, and passed on by the parents to offspring.
FLYBAN are cues that recognize both female and male.Towards certain stimuli when innate bias occurs, the insects respond to the critical stimulus, rather than the other environmental stimuli. The insect gets tricked by these cues even if they are outside their usual context.
