An field experiment was carried out on research farm of Department of Agricultural Entomology, College of Agriculture, Badnapur during Kharif
2019-20 in randomized block design with three replication and seven treatment comprising of Azadirachtin 1500 ppm, Metarhizium anisopliae, Beauveria bassiana, Verticillium lecanii, Bt. Kurstaki, NSKE
5% and untreated control to evaluate the bio-efficacy of these treatments against shoot and fruit borer Leucinodes orbonalis
In all three sprays were applied at an interval of 15 days after each spray and data on fruit infestation on the basis of number and weight basis of the fruit at each picking was recorded. The result indicated that before spray population of the pest suggest nonsignificant distribution, however the treatments of Azadirachtin 1500 ppm, Bt. Kurstaki and NSKE 5% were found significantly effective for managment of shoot and fruit borer at 3,7 and 14 days after all three spray followed by Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae and Verticillium lecanii.
