MOLLUSCICIDAL ACTIVITY OF GROUND CHERRY (PHYSALIS MINIMA LINN.) AGAINST GOLDEN APPLE SNAIL (POMACEA CANALICULATA LAM)

Janice C. Malana, Mary Ann G. Salvador.

Abstract
The search for efficient, organic, and environment-friendly molluscicide that could minimize the spread of the
invasive Golden Apple Snail (Pomacea canaliculata) in the Philippines is still on going. This study was conducted
to identify the lethal concentrations of the crude extracts of P. minima as potential molluscicides. Snail mortalities
were compared between each plant part and snail species and LC50 and LC100 values for the plant part tested were
recorded. The most toxic part of P. minima extract against the Golden Apple Snail was the roots (7.43 ml l-1)
followed by the stem (9.65 ml l-1) and the least toxic was the leaves (10.93 ml l-1) after 24-hr median lethal
concentration (LC50). Based on the 24-hours lethal concentration (LC100), the part with the greatest molluscicidal
effect on Golden Apple Snail was the roots (17.47 ml l-1) followed by the stem (21.02 ml l-1) and the part with the
least molluscicidal effect was the leaves (24.84 ml l-1). The result obtained showed that the roots extract was more
susceptible to the death of snail species Pomacea canaliculata. Comparing the LC50 and LC100 the roots extract
showed the highest molluscicidal activity followed by the stem bark and leaves extracts. Therefore, this study
indicated that ground cherry plant extracts possessed molluscicidal effect for controlling the golden apple snail.

Key words: golden apple snail, ground cherry, molluscicidal activity, lethal concentration
