Optimising Pesticidal Plants:

Technology Innovation, Outreach and Networks

The pesticidal plants listed below are some of the species that have been evaluated by OPTIONs team members.  Their inclusion is based on information about their use, efficacy, safety and potential for use across southeastern Africa.  This list is by no means a complete list of all plant species found in Africa with pesticidal properties.  Links to other sources of information about pesticidal plants can be found on our Links page.
