Abstract:
An experiment entitled “Environment friendly management of thrips and fruit flies on cucumber” was conducted at PG Research Farm, Department of Agricultural Entomology, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri during summer 2022. From the studies on environment friendly management of thrips and fruit flies on cucumber it was found that, the treatment with chemical insecticide tolfenpyrad 15 EC @ 150 g a.i/ha and flubendiamide 8.33% + deltamethrin 5.56% w/w SC @ 250 g a.i/ha were found to be most promising treatments against cucumber thrips and fruit fly, respectively with least average survival population of thrips (4.24 thrips/plant) and minimum mean percent fruit damage of 3.96 percent, respectively. However, the treatment T7 (Mulching with polythene sheet of 25 μ size + Cue lure traps+ Azadirachtin 300 ppm) was found equally effective treatment in reducing thrips population (4.45 thrips/plant) and mean percent fruit damage (5.00%) caused by cucumber fruit fly as well. When compared with chemical insecticide treatment, the treatment T7 also gave highest marketable cucumber fruit yield of 331.33 q/ha over rest of the treatments.
