Opinion now favours a shift away from reliance on conventional insecticides towards the use of more natural, sustainable methods of protecting stored foods from insect damage. This bulletin considers alternative materials applicable for use as food storage protectants, concentrating particularly on plants which have found other uses as food spices or in medical applications. Over 100 plant species are described in detail with photographs. There is also a brief update on current research on the use of plant materials as storage protectants.
