Efficacy of chlorpyrifos and dieldrin in cotton fields against subterranean termites



Efficacy of chlorpyrifos and dieldrin in cotton fields against subterranean termites



Pakistan Journal of Zoology 23(2): 133-138



Two termite species, Microtermes mycophagus and Microtermes obesi were recorded damaging cotton crop at Multan. Efficacy of chlorpyrifos and dieldrin using 400 g a.i/acre, 800 g a.i/acre and 1600 g a.i/acre in cotton crop against termite was compared. Chlorpyrifos at the rate of 1600 g a.i/acre was nearly as effective as dieldrin applied at the rate of 400 g a.i/acre.
