A note on the chemical control of Melanagromyza obtusa Malloch on cowpea



A note on the chemical control of Melanagromyza obtusa Malloch on cowpea



Indian Journal of Entomology 51(3): 355-356



A field trial was carried out in Rajasthan, India, in 1982 to determine the effectiveness of various insecticides against Melanagromyza obtusa on cowpea (Vigna unguiculata). Pod damage was lowest (2.2%) in the variant with a 1% carbofuran seed treatment followed by a 0.07% endosulfan spray at the time of 50% flowering, and highest in the untreated variant.
