This is a research-based lecture on the powers of essential oils as biopesticides presented by Nurhayat Tabanca, a natural products research scientist from the University of Mississippi's National Center for Natural Products Research.
In this free ACHS webinar, you'll learn about:
- Fungicidal and insecticidal properties of essential oils
- How increased resistance to commercially available pesticides has led to a focus on natural pesticides
