Efficacy of carbofuran seed treatment for the control of pod borers of blackgram Vigna mungo (L) Hepper



Efficacy of carbofuran seed treatment for the control of pod borers of blackgram Vigna mungo (L) Hepper



Pesticides 18(10): 57-58



A succession of pests attack black gram (Vigna mungo) in Tamil Nadu, India, Ophiomyia phaseoli and Empoasca kerri before flowering and Catochrysops cnejus Lampides boeticus and Heliothis armigera afterwards, infesting the pods. Among 6 insecticides applied in seed treatments for pod borer control in the field, seed treatment with a dust containing 4% carbofuran was the most effective, followed by seed soaking in a 0.1% solution of monocrotophos for 9 h or in a 1% solution for 3 h.
