Abstract:
A study was conducted to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of three IPM packages on the basis of infestation level of brinjal shoot and fruit borer on shoots and fruits of eggplant. The IPM package 1 consisting of mechanical control on grafted eggplant; IPM package 2 comprising kerosene, neem oil and wild Ipomoea extract application on non-grafted eggplant; IPM package 3 containing Cymbush application on grafted eggplant and untreated plants. The grafted plants treated with Cymbush resulted significantly lowest shoot and fruit infestation compared to those of other treatments. Significantly the highest yield was obtained in plants treated with Cymbush. IPM packages with grafted plants produced more fruits than non-grafted ones. The diameter and weight of individual fruit was higher in plants under IPM package 1 and 3 utilizing grafted eggplant in late fruiting stage.
