Prospects of Sudanese essential oils insecticides for safe food and environment in Sudan

EL Rasheed Siddig Libs, EL Rasheed Ahmed Salim and Mahdi Ahmed

The current study aimed to utilize different Sudanese natural essential oils (EOs) formula of insecticide, achieve chemical free agricultural production in Sudan for safe food and environment and reduce cost and simplification of technology. The study is a conceptual works which depends on the literatures, laboratory reports and descriptive analysis to access the hypothesis which claimed that, green environment in Sudan can be gained by using natural insecticides. The formulation of Sudanese insecticides from essential oils is been discussed; how to choose a good formulation? What, How, Where, Why and when can green evolution of essential oil for plants pests control be achieve, different formulation types and techniques, adjuvant, spraying, proposed bits, proper bits of formulation of good essential oil insecticides, base and guide lines of a proper models for formulizing essential oils insecticide. The results showed, the abundance of a good stock of qualitatively and quantitatively essential oil plants, diversity of aromatic plant constituents that can lead to the control of most insects, good industrial base of essential oil extraction techniques and equipment in Sudan and good know-how for formulation of stable insecticides to prospective success of this technology. It is a cheapest, simplest technology and safe insecticides which can be manufactured locally even in rural areas. In this research it is concluded that, there is a good source, good chance, cheapness and simplicity of essential oil technology in Sudan. Good institutional know-how and techniques for identification and experimental trials serve as the development of all needs for this technology adoptions in Sudan.
