Said Mir Khan and Muhammad Amjad    

Abstract: The results of chemical control of maize stem borer Chilo partellus Swin. revealed that Furadan 3G proved significantly more effective in the reduction of percent dead hearts, pest infestation and in increase of stalk and cobs weight, average number of cobs/plant and grain yield followed by Ripcord 100 g/l EC and Tamaron SL 600. High dose of all the three insecticides gave better control of maize stem borer than medium and low doses. However, medium and low doses of insecticides were also found significantly better compared to the check.
