Ecobiology and management of Mythimna separata (Walker)

Ecobiology and management of Mythimna separata (Walker)

Karnataka Journal of Agricultural Sciences 5(1): 38-44

In field trials in Dharwad, Karnataka, India, application of poison bait containing monocrotophos (250 ml monocrotophos 36 EC + 50 kg rice or wheat bran + 1 kg jaggery + 6-8 litres of water) was superior to spray applications of monocrotophos and other insecticides in the control of Mythimna separata in sorghum. Furthermore, spray application of monocrotophos was found to be phytotoxic. A dose of 25 kg of poison bait per ha is recommended for satisfactory control of the pest.
