A.U.R. Saljoqi, Irfanullah , Fazal Maula and Shahid Sattar

Abstract:
The present studies were conducted to investigate the efficacy of insecticides; Talstar 10 EC, Decis 2.5 EC, Lorsban 40 EC and Advantage 20 EC, and insect growth regulators (IGR); Cascade 10 DC and Match 50 EC, against codling moth, Cydia pomonella L. in apple orchards at Mingora (850 m altitude) and Khwazakhela (1170 m altitude), in Swat valley, Pakistan, during April-August, 2001. At both altitudes, the IGR, Cascade 10 DC, afforded the best protection to apple by resulting in the lowest average infestation (2.60%) and the highest average yield (59.71 kg tree-1). Talstar 10 EC ranked first among the insecticides for the effective management of codling moth. All other treatments were found superior than control.
