    Aspergillus flavipes; An Efficient Control Agent For Phytophthora parasitica

    In a world of pesticides and other harmful chemical, biological control is a slow but an efficient answer to life threatening chemicals. Phytophthora has always a dangerous group of invaders which attack crop plants. Fungicides is always a good response to Phytophthora diseases. But this is not good for organisms and environment. Besid e these, Phytophthora  also develop resistance to…

    Diflubenzuron (DFB) Kills Non-Target Species; New Study Discovers

    Diflubenzuron (DFB) is a pesticide used to kill the salmon lice from decades. But a recent study by S. Jannicke Moe., et. al. has found that beside its own target it also affect non-target species. These researchers developed a model based on age-structured phenomenon. The model predicts decline in shrimp abundance by 8%–99%, depending on DFB development. This study has been…
