Abstract:

A survey was conducted in Junagadh district to know the pesticide usage pattern in groundnut during Kharif 2016-17 and 2017-18. Results showed that around 20 insecticides were available in market for pest management among them Imidicloprid was the popularly sold product during both the years followed by thiamethoxam and Coragen. In 2017-18 six insecticides viz, Fipronil, Cypermethrin, Diafenthiuron, Novaluron, Buprofezin, Spinosad were not sold in Junagadh market and three new insecticide options were available for pest control in groundnut they were profenocyper, phosphomidon, lambdacyhalothrin. This trend helps us to say that most of the chemical sold had systemic action and used as seed treatment chemicals. Recent outbreak of white grubs and lepidopteran pests has resulted in such trend where Imidacloprid and Coragen were used by farmers for management of these pests. Similarly 13 fungicides were available in market for disease management among them Hexaconazole was the popularly sold product during both the years followed by Tebuconazole, Carbendazim, Difenconazole. In 2017-18 fungicide Hexaconazole was sold more in market to control of groundnut diseases. Among herbicides 11 were available in market for weed management among them Targa super was the popular sold product during both the years followed by Sodium Aciflurofen+Clodinafoppropargyl, Glyphosate. Targa super is effective in control of narrow leaf weeds. Hence we can conclude that incidence of insect pests, diseases and weeds in groundnut has resulted in the dynamics of pesticide usage in the local market.
