Abstract:
The bioefficacy of insecticides against the major sucking insect pests viz. jassid, Amrasca biguttula biguttula (Ishida) and Whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) of brinjal, Solanum melongena L. crop that the insecticide of imidacloprid 17.8 SL (0.005%) was found most effective against sucking insect pests on brinjal, followed by thiamethoxam 25 WG (0.005%), whereas, emamectin benzoate 5 SG (0.002%) and spinosad 45 SC (0.01%) were found to be least effective. The remaining treatments viz., acetamiprid 20 EC (0.004%), acephate 75 SP (0.05%), indoxacarb 14.5 SC (0.005%) and fipronil 5 SC (0.01%) were found moderately effective. The maximum fruit yield was obtained in the treatment of imidacloprid 17.8 SL (220.73 q/ha), followed by thiamethoxam 25 WG (217.88 q/ha). The higher fruit yield was also obtained in the treatment of acetamiprid 20 EC (206.95 q/ha), followed by acephate 75 SP (205.27 q/ha), indoxacarb 14.5 SC (203.22 q/ha) and fipronil 5 SC (200.14 q/ha) and minimum fruit yield of 196.28 q/ hawas obtained in the treatment of emamectin benzoate 5 SG, followed by spinosad 45 SC (198.69 q/ha). The maximum net profit of rupees 124064/ha was obtained in the treatment of imidacloprid 17.8 SL, followed by thiamethoxam 25 WG (Rs. 120144/ha), while, the minimum net profit of rupees 91404 q/ha was obtained in the treatment of emamectin benzoate 5 SG followed by spinosad 45 SC (Rs. 93462 q/ha).
