Comparative Efficacy of Bio-Pesticide And Synthetic Agrochemicals on Control Of Helicoverpa Armigera Larvae On Chickpea
Comparative Efficacy of Bio-Pesticide And Synthetic Agrochemicals on Control Of Helicoverpa Armigera Larvae
Keywords:Bio-pesticide, pod borer, neem oil, chickpea, adjuvant
An experiment was conducted for the year 2016-17 to compare the efficacy of neem bio-pesticide and synthetic agrochemicals on the control of larvae of Helicoverpa Armigera. The experiment consisted of a total of six treatments including control. There were a total of six treatments of the pesticides including control with four replicates and two application of the pesticides. The results indicate that the synthetic emamactin (T1) was the superior in controlling the larval population of pod borer with a % reduction of 63 and 88 after 1st and 2nd application. The chloropyifos showed better results next to emamactin 2nd spray. The neem bio-pesticide showed best results next to emamctin after the first application. The acetamiprid showed the least efficacy in control of pod borer larvae than all other treatments of pesticides.
