Evaluation of IPM modules for the management of pod borer complex in hybrid pigeonpea.

Abstract

A study on the evaluation of IPM modules for the management of pod borer complex in hybrid pigeonpea, ICPH 2671 was conducted during 2011-12. The data indicated that pesticide based IPM module comprising of thiodicarb 75WP, rynaxypyr 18.5SC, spinosad 45SC, DDVP 76EC and flubendiamide 480SC proved to be cost effective by recording highest grain yield (2819 kg/ha) and benefit cost ratio (4.09) followed by recommended package of practice comprising of biopesticides like NSKE and HaNPV and insecticides like thiodicarb 75WP and indoxacarb 15EC with the grain yield of 2441 kg/ha and benefit cost ratio of 3.85 and biointensive IPM module involving neem seed kernel extract, HaNPV, Bacillus thuringiensis and chilli garlic extract with 2174 kg/ha grain yield and 3.29 benefit cost ratio.
