Effect of seed soaking in insecticide solution on the germination and on the incidence of sorghum shootfly

Effect of seed soaking in insecticide solution on the germination and on the incidence of sorghum shootfly

Current Research University of Agricultural Sciences Bangalore 21(2): 29-30

Sorghum M-35-1 Jowar seeds were soaked in solutions of 0.07% endosulfan, 0.04% monocrotophos and water for 4 and 8 h, before sowing in the field in Karnataka, India. Treatment with monocrotophos resulted in reduced germination, while treatment with endosulfan increased germination.
