Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The public-private funded project “Ornamentals in the Biobased Economy” was conducted by Royal FloraHolland, Kenniscentrum Plantenstoffen, Wageningen UR, Fytagoras and Prisna. In this project, bioactivity in plant extracts against the most important pests and diseases in greenhouse cultivation were tested. In bioassays, extracts with bioactivity against powdery mildew, botrytis, aphids, spider mite and thrips were found. With LCMS, metabolic profiles of the extracts were generated. Furthermore explorative experiments with plant extracts for crop resilience were conducted, and also plant extracts were tested in a bioassay for fat metabolism in obesitas
