Effect of sowing dates on the infestation of insect pests and grain yield of pigeon pea



Effect of sowing dates on the infestation of insect pests and grain yield of pigeon pea



Indian Journal of Entomology 48(2): 230-231



A field experiment was conducted during kharif 1980 in Bihar, India, on the effect of sowing date on infestation of pigeon pea by insect pests. Pod damage due to the borer complex of Heliothis armigera and Melanagromyza obtusa was lowest (2.6%) on the early-sown crop (10 July).
