Abstract:
The present investigation on “Effectiveness of Packaging Materials and Storage Containers against Pulse Beetle (Callasobruchus chinensis L.)” was carried out by conducting a laboratory experiment by using various packaging materials viz. jute bag, gunny bag, polythene bag and cloth bag seeds of black gram in association with silica (2%) at Department of Entomology, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur during 2020-2021. Polythene bags with silica (2%) was found to be best effective treatment among various packaging materials against pulse beetle during storage having minimum oviposition (21.33); seed damage (3.33%) and weight loss (7.93%) followed by gunny bags with silica (2%) (35.66, 4.60% and 11.67%); cloth bags with silica (2%) (39.53, 6.10% and 13.19%); Polythene bags without silica (41.86, 6.66% and 15.09%); jute bags with silica (2%) (43.86, 8.53% and 15.12%); gunny bags without silica (97.73, 17.40% and 27.86%); cloth bags without silica (109.26, 22.26% and 31.54%) and jute bags without silica (143.53, 27.86% and 37.89%).
