Abstract

EFFECT OF EXTRACTION METHOD OF TITHONIA DIVERSIFOLIA LEAVES AGAINST SPODOPTERA FRUGIPERDA LARVA MORTALITY

Dian Dhika, Asmanizar*, Usman Nasution

ABSTRACT

Currently, corn crop commodities in Indonesia face threats due to the presence of invasive insect pests Fall Armyworm (FAW) Spodoptera frugiperda. The bioactive compound derived from plants could affect the insects and it is an alternative to chemical insecticide. The purpose of this study was to evaluate effect of extraction methods of Tithonia diversifolia against S. frugiperda larvae. This study was conducted in the laboratory and the treatments were crude extract of T. diversifolia leaves obtained by maceration extraction, influsa, and Soxhlet extraction. No treatment and water as control in this study. The study arranged as Completely Randomized Design with 4 replication. Ten larvae of intar III and IV were dipped at 0.5% of crude extracts and the mortality the insects were observed. The results showed that leaf crude extract of T. difersivolia obtained by soxhlet extraction method had the potential to control S. frugiperda larvae with a mortality percentage of 92.50%.
