  • Abstract

    Agricultural crops are facing several losses due to pest. Pesticides, biopestcides , plant defence compounds are different ways to protect the agricultural crop losses. The enzyme inhibitors act on insect gut digestive a-amylases and proteinases, which play a key role in the digestion of plant starch and proteins. Starchy leguminous seeds are an important staple food in manycountries. These seeds are rich in protein, and carbohydrate therefore suffer extensive predation by bruchids (weevils)and other pests. Insects like weevils are highly dependent on starch for their energy supply. In this review, we summarize the effects of pesticides, need of bio pesticides, different types and sources of plant α-amylase inhibitors their interaction with insect a-amylases and subsequent insect mortality.
