Control of brinjal flea beetle psylliodes tenebrosus with certain organo phosphorus insecticides

Control of brinjal flea beetle psylliodes tenebrosus with certain organo phosphorus insecticides

Indian Journal of Entomology 43(1): 59-63

Eight organophosphorus insecticides were sprayed on brinjal, variety Pusa Purple long, to control the flea beetle, P. tenebrosus Jacoby under field conditions. The insecticides included monocrotophos (0.04%), phosphamidon (0.03%), malathion (0.1%), phosalone (0.05%), vamidothion (0.05%), formothion (0.04%), quinalphos (0.025%) and dichlorvos (0.05%). All the insecticides reduced flea beetle infestation, but malathion was least effective. Their effectiveness in descending order was: monocrotophos, dichlorvos, formothion, phosphamidon, vamidothion, phosalone, quinalphos and malathion. Three applications of the insecticides at fortnightly intervals gave full control of the pest.
