Evaluation of Synthetic and Some Plant Origin Insecticides Against Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) on Chickpea

Akbar Ali Rajput, M. Sarwar, Moula Bux and M. Tofique


Field experiment was conducted to test a synthetic insecticide and insecticidal properties of four selected plant origin materials at the experimental farm, NIA, Tandojam. Insecticidal effects of these products were assessed against Helicoverpa species on chickpea crop and compared with control. After treatment, counts for larval mortality and percentage pods infestation were made at 24 and 72 h intervals. Our experimental results showed that over all pods infestation percentage and seed yield in treated plots were significantly higher than the untreated plots. However, as it is evident from the data the synthetic product gave the best results than all the sets of natural products for the parameters studies.
