The generation of organic solid waste (OSW) has increased among other reasons, as a result of population growth and the lack of alternatives for ehandling and management. In Colombia, 2.2% of the OSW is burnt in open air, or is taken without prior treatment to open dumps (7.6%) or landfill (90.2%)1. Under these circumstances, the degradation of org...

El cultivo de pasifloras se ha incrementado en regiones de clima templado-frio del departamento de Cundinamarca especialmente en la Región del Sumapaz. Dentro las principales especies se encuentran Gulupa y Curuba, que se explotan principalmente en pequeños huertos familiares. Su comercialización se ha incrementado en los últimos años, por lo cual...
Conference Paper
Control of Spodoptera frugiperda generates a high use of agrochemicals. However there is alternative control as the use of essential oils due to the biological activity of its metabolites, as has been reported in plants of genus Piper. In this research, the insecticidal effect of the essential oil of Piper aduncum inflorescences on S. frugiperda la...

Cymbopogon citratos (lemongrass) is recognized for its aromatic and medicinal properties. Its essential oil is a basic material with high added value for these properties and for cosmetic use. The quality, quantity and duration of light are important factors in the physiological behavior and yields of essential oil of lemongrass. The purpose of thi...

La habichuela es una planta tipo C3 no muy eficiente en sus procesos de fotosíntesis. Esta planta fija el CO2 realizando el ciclo de Calvin, catalizado por la enzima Rubisco. Existe un proceso respiratorio no mitocondrial que consume O2 y produce CO2 estimulado por la luz, conocido como fotorrespiración. Este proceso reviste importancia en las plan...

For a long time, Colombian agriculture was part of the green revolution process, which has created several problems of environmental contamination, deterioration of soil quality and health of producers who handle the products of chemical synthesis. The use of plant extracts of the genus Piper can be an alternative weed management to reduce the indi...

The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, is an economically important pest in crops such as cereals, cotton and pastures. Primary control of this pest is based on the application of synthetic chemical products. Due to chemical nature of secondary metabolites in plants of genus Piper, the effects of Piper extracts on larvae of S. frugiperda were ev...
Conference Paper
Lippia origanoides is an aromatic plant with a high yield and quality of essential oils (EO). According to the main compound of EO, there are several chemotypes, as thymol and carvacrol, which may differ in their development, in agronomic behavior or yield of EO. However, due to its wild nature, agronomic studies of this species and its chemotypes...

Piper aduncum is a wild specie widely distributed in Sumapaz region (Cundinamarca, Colombia), which is interesting for presence of secondary metabolites. P. aduncum could be used to reduce the use of synthetic chemical products to control weeds, pests and diseases. Its widespread use is necessary to have plant material in large quantities in order...

Piperaceae family plants have secondary metabolites with potential use in medicine for preventing and curing diseases and in agriculture to control plant disease problems. Due to the expansion of agricultural borders and development of roads and infrastructure, these species tend to disappear. This study was conducted at the farm " La Esperanza " a...

Bud rot complex (PC) is a disease that affects oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.). It is a gradual rot of the young tissue which can kill the palm if the meristem is affected. Certain predisposing factors seem involved in development of the disease. However, in Colombia, many sick palms recover naturally. Knowing the multiple effects of polyamines...

Polyamines (PA) are small molecules that are present in all living forms. Because of their biochemical properties, polyamines in plants are involved in several processes, including cell growth, plant development, and responses against multiple stress events. Here, some aspects about polyamine biosynthesis and their functions in plants are reviewed....
