Effect of the control of maize borer (Chilo partellus Swin) on yield and yield components of maize (Zea mays L.) as influenced by different insecticides


Effect of the control of maize borer (Chilo partellus Swin) on yield and yield components of maize (Zea mays L.) as influenced by different insecticides



Journal of Agricultural Research, Pakistan 11(4): 49-56



In field trials at Yousafwala in the Punjab in 1972-3 the effectiveness of various insecticides for the control of maize borer (C. partellus) was evaluated. Furadan-10G Nuracron-40EC Supracide-40EC and diazinon-10G increased grain yields to 120.0, 100.7, 92.9 and 83.8 maunds/ac, respectively, compared with 61.7 maunds for endrin and 33.1 maunds for the untreated control.
