Impact of neem-based insecticides on beneficial arthropods in cotton ecosystem



Impact of neem-based insecticides on beneficial arthropods in cotton ecosystem



Annals of Plant Protection Sciences 9(2): 225-229



The effects of neem formulations based on azadirachtin content (NeemAzal, Rakshak Gold and ICIPE Neem at 1% each) and triazophos were evaluated against beneficial arthropods (including parasitoids: Encarsia transvena, E. lutea and predators: spiders, coccinellids and Chrysoperla carnea) in the cotton agroecosystem. Parasitism of Bemisia tabaci by Encarsia spp. was minimum (4.1%) upon treatment with 2 litres Rakshak Gold/ha and was at par with the control (4.5%).
