Chemical control of Spodoptera litura Fabricius on groundnut crop

Chemical control of Spodoptera litura Fabricius on groundnut crop

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.
