Management of insecticide resistant populations of diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Yponomeutidae: Lepidoptera)



Management of insecticide resistant populations of diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Yponomeutidae: Lepidoptera)



Pest Management in Horticultural Ecosystems 9(1): 33-40



Thiodicarb, lufenuron, Spinosad and Bacillus thuringiensis (Biobit) emerged as the most promising insecticides for managing field populations of diamondback moth (DBM) resistant to conventional insecticides. Reduction of larval population in plots treated with these chemicals ranged from 57.13 to 99.99%. Incidentally, the efficacy of these products resulted in higher cabbage yields during two field trials in Dharwad, Karnataka, India, during 1998-99.
