Resistance in Musk-melon (Cucumis melo L.) Against Melon Fruit Fly Bactocera cucurbitae Coq) and its Chemical Control in Dera Ismail Khan.

Said Mir Khan and Momen Khan Musakhel

Abstract:
Experiments were conducted to determine the varietal resistance of muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) against Bactrocera (=Dacus) cucurbitae Coq and to evaluate the comparative efficacy of Dipterex and Malation alone as well as in combination with molasses against fruitfly. The results of varietal resistance trial reveal that `Sarda` variety with 16.33 percent infestation was found the least susceptable to the attack of B. cucurbitae, followed by Mankera (23.33 %) and Bonanza (41.67 %). Local variety Bukhara was most susceptible (having 64.00 % infestation) to the attack of the pest. In the chemical control trial the muskmelon crop was sprayed with Dipterex alone, Dipterex + Molasses, Malathion alone and Malathion + Molasses for two times.The first spray was done after fruit setting and second spray was done 15 days after first spray. The results show that all the treatments were significantly better than control. Dipterex + Molasses was found the best of all, followed by Malathion + Molasses, Dipterex alone and Malathion alone.
