Abstract:

Four different trap crop plants viz, napier grass, sudan grass, sorghum and bajra were assessed for their potential role as a trap crop in the management of spotted stem borer Chilo partellus (Swinhoe) on maize. Oviposition preference and larval survival tests were conducted in screen house under semi controlled conditions. Results revealed that napier grass was greatly preferred for oviposition over maize but the larval survivability was very poor. The remaining test plants viz, sudan grass, sorghum and bajra were not much potential as trap crops for oviposition preference and also larval survivability was more when compared with napier grass.
