Efficacy of some safer grain protectants against the pulse beetle callosobruchus chinensis infesting stored bengal gram cicer arietinum



Efficacy of some safer grain protectants against the pulse beetle callosobruchus chinensis infesting stored bengal gram cicer arietinum



PKV Research Journal 9(1): 53-55



Among the vairous pulse protectants tried, Acorus calamus L. rhizome powder and activated clay both in the proportion of 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5% by weight proved to be quite effective in arresting the development activities of the pulse beetle attacking stored gram. Other protectants viz., cow dung ash 1.0% and smearing with groundnut oil at 1 ml/kg grain were not found effective.
