Efficacy and economics of some neem based products against tobacco caterpillar, Spodoptera litura F. on soybean in Madhya Pradesh, India



Efficacy and economics of some neem based products against tobacco caterpillar, Spodoptera litura F. on soybean in Madhya Pradesh, India



International Journal of Agricultural Sciences 3(2): 15-17



A field experiment was conducted at Zonal Agricultural Station (JNKVV), Powarkheda, Madhya Pradesh, India, during kharif 2004 and 2005. Six neem-based products and quinalphos (0.04%) were evaluated to assess the efficacy and economics of managing Spodoptera litura in soyabean. Quinalphos (0.04%) application proved to be the most effective, reducing 73.28% of the larval population, and recording the highest seed yield (1183.13 kg/ha) and incremental cost:benefit ratio (ICBR; 7.40).
