The effective and economical treatments consisting of organic amendment as castor cake @ 1 ton/ha + seed treatment with fipronil 5 SC 5 ml/kg seed (ICBR: 1:7.36) or castor cake @ 1 ton/ha + seed treatment with chlorpyriphos 20 EC 4 ml/kg seed (ICBR: 1:7.51) or organic amendment as neem cake @ 1 ton/ha + seed treatment of fipronil 5 SC 5 ml/kg seed (ICBR: 1:3.50) were found highly effective components for the management of termite in wheat crop. There was no deleterious effect of the treatments on seed germination and number of tillers per plant
