Evaluation of promising genotype against pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera in pigeon pea

Author(s):

Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during Kharif, 2012-13 to screen ten pigeon pea genotypes against gram pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera, at instructional farm Sant Kabir College of Agriculture and Research station, Kawardha, IGKV. The mean larval population of pod borers ranged from 0.63 to 1.29 larvae/plant. The experiment showed significantly lowest larval population in BDN-2 and UPAS-120 as compared to other genotype. Among the 10 genotype BDN-2 recorded least pod damage of 6.86% followed by UPAS 120 (8.74%), RPS-2007-63 (9.00%), Asha (9.59%), and PA 382 (9.22%) and was significantly better than other genotypes. The results showed that the genotypes maximum seed yield was recorded in BDN-2 (940.97 kg ha), followed by UPAS 120 (915.51 kg ha), RPS-2007-63 (885.41 kg ha) and Asha (775.46 kg ha), while minimum seed yield was recorded in RPS-2007-109 (486.11kg ha).
