United States Patent No. US 8,329,617 B2, Dec. 11, 2012
This invention relates to the control of plant pests, such as aphid and whitefly by treating plants with a compound which inhibits the plant pests ability to overcome plant defense responses, such as piperonyl butoxide or propyl gallate, in combination with a compound which activates plant defense responses, such as cis-Jasmone or beta-aminobutyric acid.
