While, the highest yield 130.4 q/ha was obtained from the treatment Imidacloprid 70% WG as well as B:C ratio 1:10.64 was obtained high from this treatment. It was followed by acetamiprid 20% SP (1:10.08), Indoxacarb14.5 SC (1:9.16), Fipronil 5% SC (1:8.45), Diafenthiuron 50% WP (1:7.32), Thiamethoxam 25% WG (1:6.97), Neem oil 1500ppm (1:5.64), as compared to Control (1:3.41).
