Abstract:
A field investigation was conducted at Central Research Farm, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj. During Rabi season 2021-22. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design with eight treatments, replicated thrice. The data revealed that most effective treatments was Cypermethrin 10EC (70.09%) as compared to the untreated control, followed by Imidacloprid 17.8%SL (66.91%), Neem oil 0.03% (65.97%), Sixer plus (64.50%), Metarizium anisopliae (62.48%), Verticilium lecanii 1.15%WP (61.08%) and Beauvaria bassiana 1×109 CFU (59.04%) proved to be least effective. The highest yield and cost benefit ratio was recorded in Cypermethrin 10EC (49.6 q/ ha, 1:2.01) followed by Imidacloprid 17.8%SL (46.2 q/ ha, 1:1.82), Neem oil 0.03% (44.4 q/ ha, 1:1.71), Sixer plus (42.4 q/ ha, 1:1.45), Metarizium anisopliae (40.2 q/ ha, 1:1.33), Verticilium lecanii 1.15%WP (39.2 q/ ha, 1:1.40) and Beauvaria bassiana 1×109 CFU (37 q/ ha, 1:1.23) as compared to untreated control (31.2 q/ ha, 1:0.99).
