Use of some plant powders oils and extracts as protectants against pulse beetle callosobruchus chinensis



Use of some plant powders oils and extracts as protectants against pulse beetle callosobruchus chinensis



Indian Journal of Entomology 38(2): 110-113



Powders of sweetflag rhizomes (Acorus calamus], caner drupes [Thevetia nerifolia], Adhatoda [A. vasica] and sadabahar [Ipomea cornea] leaves, petroleum ether extract of garlic and onion and neem [Azadirachta indica] oil were tested for their repellent property against C. chinensis Linn. infesting gram seed. The results showed that 1 to 2 parts of powdered caner drupes or sweetflag rhizomes, 8 parts of sadabahar leaf powder and 1 to 3 parts of petroleum ether extract of garlic and neem oil per 100 parts of seed effectively protect gram seeds from damage by the bruchid for at least 125 days. Adhatoda leaf powder (8 parts per 100 parts of seed) and petroleum ether extract of onion (5 parts per 100 parts of seed), however, proved to be ineffective. No adverse effect of treatments was observed on the germination of the seeds.
