Efficacy of mixtures of carbofuran treated and untreated sorghum seed for the control of shootfly atherigona soccata



Efficacy of mixtures of carbofuran treated and untreated sorghum seed for the control of shootfly atherigona soccata



Journal of Maharashtra Agricultural Universities 10(1): 36-38



Different mixtures of carbofuran treated and untreated CSH-5 hybrid seed were evaluated in the field for the control of shootfly during 1980 rainy season. Carbofuran treated and untreated seeds were in the ratios of 10:0, 8:2, 6:4, 5:5, 4:6, 2:8, and 0:10. Shootfly dead-hearts were significantly lower in 10:0, 8:2, and 6:4 seed mixtures. In these mixtures, the grain and fodder yields were also significantly more over the control. An increase in grain and fodder yield in carbofuran treated mixtures were higher over untreated control. The use of carbofuran seed treatment in middle and late sowing was justifiable. The proportion of treated and untreated seed mixtures up to 6:4 gave economical control of shootfly.
