Abstract

Chickpea was planted in a complete randomized block design (CRBD) in an experimental field of Agricultural Faculty of Razi University, in Kermanshah, Iran, for a two years period. Bivenich, a local Desi type variety mostly sown, by the farmers in the Kermanshah province in west Iran was used. Six treatments applied, release of green lacewing Chrysoperla lucasina larvae, 4 different insecticide treatments and control. The statistical softwares of SAS and MSTAT-C were used for analysis of data and comparison between means, respectively. The green lacewing 2nd instar larvae were released, one month after insecticide sprayings. The perforation of the seed coat and the weight of attacked seeds by chickpea pod borers, have been chosen as signs and impact of damage caused by the pest and inefficiency of insecticide treatments used, in both years of experiment, 2005 and 2007.
