Abstract

Studies on “Efficacy of selected bio-pesticides against Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.) pod borer complex under field conditions†were conducted at International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) Hyderabad, during 2016-17 and 2017-18. These studies revealed Spinosad 45%SC treatment as the most effective against Maruca vitrata. Lower larval population of M. vitrata was observed when crop was treated with consortium of biopesticides which were statistically at par with neem fruit powder. In case of farmers field the treatments with Spinosad and consortium were found most effective and were statistically on par with each other in M. vitrata. The study concluded that neem seed powder is highly recommended to the farmer for management of M vitrata after the chemical insecticide Spinosad.
