Lobelia inflata L. (Indian tobacco) is a traditional medicinal plant native to North America. It belongs to the family Campanulaceae. The plan can reach the height of 60 cm. It contains several piperidine alkaloids. Interest in Lobelia alkaloids, and in particular (-)-lobeline, the most active of them, has increased in recent years due to their activity on the central nervous system, drug abuse and multidrug resistance. Our studies have been completed in an attempt to introduce this species into cultivation in Hungary. The open field trials were aimed mainly at optimizing the method and quantity of fertilizer application on the biomass of alkaloid production of plants. The seeds were sown in glasshouse. The seedlings were transplanted into the open field. From June to August 2010 we observed significant damages caused by Spanish slug (Árion vulgaris) and Roman snail (Helix pomatia). The experiments show that Carakol-6 slug pellet agent was used successfully in the plant stand. The highest biomass value of the herb was in the 50 kg/ha N treatment (5.87 g). The lowest values were recorded for the untreated control (3.51 g).
