Abstract

Storage containers and botanical oils were evaluated for managing bruchids in groundnut. After six months
storage, damage to pods in airtight plastic container, APC was less (34.0 and 35.0%, respectively for neem and castor oils) than air-permeable galvanized iron tin, APGIT (75.8 and 73.8%, respectively). Similarly, weight loss of pods stored in APC was less (33.5 and 31.4%, respectively for neem and castor oils) than APGIT (77.8 and 76.1%,
respectively). When tested alone, APC was superior to APGIT while, neem and castor oils were statistically nonsignificant. It was noted that treatments and length of storage had no impact on germination.
