Field efficacy of nuclear polyhedrosis virus against the red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta albistriga (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) on groundnut in Karnataka



Field efficacy of nuclear polyhedrosis virus against the red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta albistriga (Walker) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) on groundnut in Karnataka



Journal of Biological Control 19(2): 141-144



Field experiments were conducted at Pavagada, Karnataka, India, during August 2003, to study the efficacy of nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV) against the red hairy caterpillar (Amsacta albistriga) in groundnut TMV 2. The results showed that A. albistriga NPV at 1.5x1012 POB/ha was as effective as chlorpyrifos applied at 20 g a.i./ha against the red hairy caterpillar.
