Abstract:
The present study reports the results of a laboratory- based bio- efficacy study conducted on Petrobia harti (Ewing) occurring on a weed, Oxalis corniculata with application of essential oils as well as botanical and conventional pesticides. The pooled mean percentage of reduction of different treatments may be arranged in the descending order as: T6 (Propargite) >T5 (Neem oil) >T7 (Cypermethrin) >T4 (Peppermint oil) >T3 (Rosemary oil) >T1 (Eucalyptus oil) >T2 (Lemongrass oil). However, the essential oils treated in this experiment had shown good acaricidal property though they were little inferior to both the conventional chemical pesticides like propergite and cypermethrin.
