Comparative efficacy of some modern insecticides and neem based formulations against cabbage butterfly, Pieris brassicae



Comparative efficacy of some modern insecticides and neem based formulations against cabbage butterfly, Pieris brassicae



Indian Journal of Entomology 65(2): 264-267



The laboratory efficacy of five new insecticides (profenofos at 0.05%, carbosulfan at 0.05%, Polytrin C (profenofos+cypermethrin) at 0.05%, imidacloprid at 0.007% and koranda (fenvalerate+acephate) at 0.05%), four conventional insecticides (endosulfan at 0.07%, quinalphos at 0.05%, monocrotophos at 0.04% and dichlorvos at 0.075%) and four neem based formulations (neem oil, Nimbicidine, Neemarin and Achook, each at 0.50%) were evaluated against the early III instar larvae of cabbage butterfly, P. brassicae. All the treatments were significantly superior over the control in reducing larval population. All the insecticides caused 100 per cent larval mortality after 72 h of spraying and were significantly superior compared to the neem-based formulations. Among the neem-based formulations, Neemarin gave the maximum larval mortality (50.00%) and was significantly effective to other neem products after 72 h of spraying. Neem oil was the least effective, exhibiting 16.66% larval mortality after 72 h.
