Abstract

Efficacy of chlorpyriphos granules against sugarcane shoot borer Chilo infuscatellus Snell.

Abstract

The new product, chlorpyrifos 10% granules, was tested for its efficacy against shoot borer during 1996-97 at Cuddalore, in comparison to the standard control Sevidol 4:4 granules (Sevin [carbaryl] + gamma BHC [lindane]). Chlorpyrifos 10G at 1.0 and 1.5 kg/ha afforded 39.5 and 50.9% reduction in shoot borer infestation. Increased sugarcane yields were recorded.
