Random information on the term “Rapeseed oil”:
The diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella), sometimes called the cabbage moth, is a moth species belonging to the Plutellidae family and Plutella genus. The small, grayish-brown moth sometimes has a cream-colored band that forms a diamond along its back. It’s believed that the species may have originated in Europe, South Africa, or the Mediterranean region, but it has now spread worldwide.
The moth has a short life cycle (14 days at 25 °C), is highly fecund, and is capable of migrating long distances. Diamondback moths are considered pests as they feed on the leaves of cruciferous crops and plants that produce glucosinolates. However, not all of these plants are equally useful as hosts to the moth. Because of this, studies have suggested using wintercress as a trap crop around agricultural fields because diamondback moths are highly attracted to that plant but their larvae fail to survive when eggs are laid on it.
Originally, pesticides were used to kill the moths but diamondbacks have developed resistance to many of the common chemicals. For this reason, new biological and chemical controls, as well as different planting methods are being pursued to reduce the destruction caused by the moths.
