EFFECT OF MEDICINAL PLANT EXTRACTS ON THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENTAL BEHAVIOUR OF Spodoptera litura (Fab.)
Use of synthetic pesticides played a significant role in restricting many pest problems. But excessive use of pesticides promote faster evolution of resistant forms of pests, destroy natural enemies, turn innocuous species
into pests, harm non-target species and contaminate food chain (Parmer and DevKumar, 1993; Martini-Bettolo, 1977). In such situations, bioactive plants products, being less persistent in environment, safe for mammals and other nontarget organisms may act as better alternative for pest control (Gautam et al., 2003).
