Abstract

Plant extracts contain substances that may induce, in treated plant, stimulation of defense mechanism, which will result in increased crop resistance especially against pathogenic microorganisms and pests that are causing the biggest economic losses and propagate the infection risk in time. Plant extracts are topics approached for a long time in support of organic agriculture, but still represents a generous particularly concerning on this essential aspect of a real organic agriculture. This paper is aimed at biochemical characterization of plant extracts of nettle and wormwood in order to capitalize them further as organic bioinsecticide / biofertilizers in organic agriculture. Extracts of nettle and wormwood are repellents and usually used preventative against pests, but also with economic advantages.
