Cohen, Y.; Baider, A.; Ben-Daniel, B. and Ben-DanieI, Y. (2002) Fungicidal preparations from Inula viscose. [Extrakte aus Inula viscose zur Bekämpfung von Pilzkrankheiten.] In: Boos, Markus (Ed.) 10th International Conference on Cultivation Technique and Phytopathological Problems in Organic Fruit-Growing and Viticulture. Proceedings to the Conference from 4th to 7th Feb. 2002 at Weinsberg/Germany, pp. 152-156.
Inula viscosa is a perennial plant native to the Mediterranean Basin. Extracts made from the shoots of this plant exhibited a strong fungicidal activity in vitro and in vivo. TLC analyses revealed at least 7 fungicidal compounds. Most are lipophilic. When such extracts were sprayed on the leaf surface of crop plants they effectively controlled downy mildew in grape, cucumber and tabacco; late blight in potato and tomato; gray mold in cucumber and tomato; and, powdery mildew in cucurbits and cereals. Field experiments conducted with grape vine resulted in effective control of Plasmopara viticola. The data suggest that Inula viscosa is a useful source of herbal fungicidal preparations for agricultural use.
