Phytochemical responses to herbicide exposure and effects on herbivorous insects


The work carried out in this project was focussed on two issues, i.e. do sulfonylurea herbicides in general affect leaf-eating insect larvae and is the observed effects caused by phenolic compounds. This report demonstrates that the effects observed on herbivorå insects following treatment with chlorsulfuron is not found for two other sulfonylurea herbicides. In the chlorsulfuron case it was found that the mortality was closely correlated to the content of specific phenols.
