D. Rajabaskar and A. Regupathy

Abstract:
The bioefficacy of neem formulations, diafenthiuron and profenofos was tested individually and found effective against thrips Sciothrips cardamomi Ramk and shoot and capsule borer Conogethes punctiferalis Gunee in small cardamom. Based on the cost effectiveness, TNAU Neem oil 0.03 EC (1000 mL ha-1), diafenthiuron 50 WP (600 g ai ha-1) and profenofos 50 EC (500 mL ha-1) were used to develop different IPM modules. Eleven IPM modules were evaluated and found to the sequential application of Neem, Diafenthiuron, Diafenthiuron, Profenofos and Profenofos (NDDPP) at 21 days interval was the most effective against S. cardamomi and the sequential application of Neem, Profenofos, Diafenthiuron, Neem and Profenofos (NPDNP) was the most effective against shoot and capsule borer C. punctiferalis. These IPM modules were more cost effective compared to other modules.
