Abstract

Leaf-surface extracts prepared from 18 non-cultivated (wild) plant species, derived from the Capparidaceae, Cruciferae, Resedaceae and Tropaeolaceae were ranked for their ability to stimulate oviposition by the cabbage root fly, and analysed for glucosinolates. A total of 28 different glucosinolates were identified. A clear relationship was detected between the indolyl-, benzyl- and the total glucosinolate composition on the leaf surface and oviposition preference by cabbage root fly females. However, as the results are not fully explained by differences in leaf surface glucosinolates, other important oviposition deterrents and stimuli on the leaf surface of these wild crucifers must also be present.
