Chemical control of Spodoptera litura Fabricius on groundnut crop

, : Chemical control of Spodoptera litura Fabricius on groundnut crop. Pesticides 16(8): 19-20

Field experiments on the control of Spodoptera litura (F.), which has recently become a major pest of groundnut in India, were carried out at Bapatla in Andhra Pradesh with 17 insecticides as foliar sprays. Monocrotophos, quinalphos, leptophos and endosulfan, all applied at 0.05%, gave the best larval mortality and increased the yield, and methamidophos, fenitrothion and chlordimeform (chlorphenamidine) at the same concentration were the next most effective.
