Field evaluation of some insecticides against tobacco caterpillar (Spodoptera litura Fabricius) on groundnut



Field evaluation of some insecticides against tobacco caterpillar (Spodoptera litura Fabricius) on groundnut



Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 26(2): 164-165



A field experiment was conducted in Jalgaon, Maharashtra, India, during 1994-97 to evaluate different insecticides against tobacco caterpillar (Spodoptera litura) on groundnut JL-24. The different herbicides tested were 0.05% monocrotophos, 0.05% quinalphos, 0.03% phosphamidon, 0.05% dichlorvos, 0.025% methomyl, 0.04% chlorpyrifos, and 0.1% profenofos. The pooled data revealed that all the insecticidal treatments were significantly superior over the untreated control in reducing the damage.
