Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to assess the chemical control of sugarcane stem borer, Chilo infuscatellus (Sn). In the experimental area of Sugarcane Section, Agriculture Research Institute, Tandojam during 1999-2000 season. Four insecticides namely Furadan 3G (carbofuran) at 12 kg/ac, Padan 4G (cartap) at 9 kg/ac, Basudin 10G (diazinon) at 9 kg/ac and Thimet 5G (phorate) at 10 kg/ac and compared with an un-treated (check plots) using a “Complete Randomized Block Design” with three replicates. It was found that all insecticides minimum infestation percentage of stem borer significantly at 10, 15 and 30 days of post- treatment and increased cane yield over check plot. Among the best products Furadan proved superior in checking stem borer infestation over rest of the product tested.
