Abdul Rashid, Habib Ahmad Saeed , Lal Hussain Akhtar , Sabir Zameer Siddiqi and Muhammad Arshad

Abstract:
Effects of five insecticides i.e. Chlorpyrifos, (2500 ml ha-1), Endosulfan (2500 ml ha-1), Indoxicarb (425 ml ha-1), Profenophos (2500 ml ha-1) and Spinosad (200 ml ha-1) alongwith untreated check against gram pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera Hubner) were investigated during Rabi season, 2001-2002. Chickpea variety Bittle-98 was used as a test variety. The plots were sprayed at pod formation stage followed 2nd spray after 15 days. Results revealed that a varying degree of control was achieved in different insecticidal treatments in terms of decreased pest population and pod damage resulting in increased seed yield. Among the various insecticides tested, Spinosad (Tracer) and Indoxicarb (Steward) were highly effective against gram pod borer while Endosulfan was found to be the least effective insecticide.
