Bioefficacy and economics of certain insecticides against pod infesting pests of pigeonpea cajanus cajan l. millsp



Bioefficacy and economics of certain insecticides against pod infesting pests of pigeonpea cajanus cajan l. millsp



Indian Journal of Plant Protection 19(1): 37-42



Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) is the most important pulse crop of Madhya Pradesh and is severely damaged by pigeonpea pod fly (Melanagromyza obtusa Mall.) and pod over borer (Helicoverpa armigera Hubner). Monocrotophos (0.05%), endosulfan (0.07%), fenvalerate (0.01%), decamethrin (0.002%), (foliar spray), parathion (2%) and BHC (10%) + D.D.T. (5%) (1:1) dusts (@ 25 kg/ha, were applied twice at 50% flowering and 15 days later to control these pests during 1986-87 and 1987-88 at the Zonal Agricultural Research Station, Powarkheda (M.P.). The results indicated that monocrotophos and endosulfan successfully checked the pod and grain damage by pod fly and pod borer resulting in nigher yields of pigeonpea. These treatments gave a net profit of Rs. 3097 and Rs. 2545/-per na. respectively with a cost/benefit ratio of 1:5.5.
