This paper reviewed the research progress of screening and activity evaluation of terpenoid botanical pesticides in recent 20 years at home and abroad including the perspective of the antifeedant, repellent, poisonous activities and growth regulation of terpene type insecticides, the inhibition of terpene type antibacterial agents, phytopathogens and the activity of terpene type herbicides in the inhibition of seed germination and seedling growth. The investigation and application of agriculture active terpenoid botanical compounds were systematically introduced and summarized. Based on the existing problems in relevant research fields, the development prospects for the screening and application of terpenoid botanical pesticides was forecasted. This review will provide guidance for the synthesis and application of high-active terpenoid botanical pesticides and devote deeply to the exploitation and utilization of terpenoid resources.

Key words: terpenoids, botanical pesticides, essential oil, pesticide screening
