Bioefficacy of combination insecticide, buprofezin + deltamethrin (5.65 % + 0.72 %), a product of MeghamaniÂ Organics Ltd., Ahmedabad was evaluated at two doses 62.5 +0.78 g a.i./ha and 75.0+0.94 g a.i./ha along with theÂ available market samples against leaf folder and plant hoppers (BPH and WBPH) infesting rice under irrigatedÂ conditions at Central Farm, Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar during Kharif seasonsÂ of 2009 and 2010.
