THE INFLUENCE OF FOENICULUM VULGARE FRUIT POWDER
Aleksandra Błażejewska, Krystyna Wyrostkiewicz
Sitophilus oryzae L. was bred on wheat grains with different doses of ground Foeniculum vulgare fruit powder. The powder added lowered the fertility of Sitophilus not only in the generation exposed to it but also in the succeeding generation (F1) bred with no Foeniculum vulgare powder added.
Key words: Sitophilus oryzae L., Foeniculum vulgare, powder, fertility.
