Efficacy of some vegetable oils as protectants against the pulse beetle (Callosobruchus chinensis) in green gram (Phaseolus aureus) during storage



Efficacy of some vegetable oils as protectants against the pulse beetle (Callosobruchus chinensis) in green gram (Phaseolus aureus) during storage



Indian Journal of Nutrition and Dietetics 36(10): 436-442



Application of four plant oils, neem oil (Azadirachta indica), karanja oil (Pongamia glabra) mohua oil (Madhuca latifolia) and palmolein oil (Elaeis guineensis) at dosages of 0.5 and 1.0% level effectively protected green gram from pulse beetle (Callosobruchus chinensis). These oils caused a significant reduction in oviposition and adult emergence. Neem oil at one per cent level gave the best protection, followed by palmolein, karanja and mohua oils.
