Chemical control of leaf feeding caterpillar Brachmia macroscopa Meyr. on sweet potato



Chemical control of leaf feeding caterpillar Brachmia macroscopa Meyr. on sweet potato



Haryana Agricultural University Journal of Research 4(2): 173-175



In September 1972, larvae of Brachmia macroscopa Meyr. were found damaging the leaves of sweet potato at Hissar, Haryana, India, for the first time. In cases of severe infestation the crop was almost defoliated. Nineteen insecticides were applied in sprays to crops in the field, and larvae were confined in the laboratory for 1-3 days on leaves from the field-treated plants.
