Effect of Cucurbit Intercropping and the Number of Sprays of Dipterex 80sp Against Fruit Fly Complex on Bittergourd (Momrdica charantia L.) at D.I. Khan District

Hussan Ara Begum, S. Agha Shah Hussain, Liaqatullah Khan and Masood Khan Khattak

Abstract:
Squash and bittergourd intercropping significantly reduced the attack of fruit fly on bittergourd as compared to the control. Other cucurbits (musk melon and cucumber) when intercropped with bittergourd had no negative effect on the bittergourd infestation by fruit fly, as 71.65 and 75.00 percent infestation was statistically similar to 78.33 percent. Considering all aspects, two sprays of Dipterex 80SP at an interval of 14 days, proved to be the best number for controlling the bittergourd infestation by the fruit fly.
