BIOCHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS OF TEAK LEAVES AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON TEAK DEFOLIATOR AND SKELETONIZERK.H. Kabade and Z.P. Patel
In order to determine the biochemical constituents of teak leaves and their influence on teak defoliator and skeletonizer, the study was conducted in the Laboratories of Biotechnology and Agricultural Chemistry of ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, Gujarat during 2010 and 2011. Result revealed that average phenol, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and protein contents to the tune of (28.81mg phenol/100g), (2.13mg/g tissue), (2.52mg/g tissue) and (7.65mg/100g sample) respectively. There was a significant positive correlation between leaf damage caused by defoliator and skeletonizer and chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b while, it was significant but negative with respect to protein and phenol contents.
