Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted to assess the effectiveness of various whorl applications of poison bait for controlling Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith), the fall armyworm, on maize. Results on efficacy revealed that all selected insecticides as poison bait composition were effective against the target insect. However, the poison bait (Rice bran + Jaggery) prepared by using insecticide Spinetoram 11.7% SC recorded significantly highest mortality of 91.73% was followed by Chlorpyriphos 20% EC which recorded a mortality of 89.20% and Chlorantraniliprole 18.5% SC recorded 86.63% of mortality. Therefore, they can be recommended as effective poison bait. It is suggested to practice whorl application of poison bait with effective chemicals viz., Spinetoram 11.7% SC, Chlorpyriphos 20% EC, Chlorantraniliprole 18.5% SC and Emamectin Benzoate 1.9% EC for eco-friendly and effective management of Spodoptera frugiperda.
