Abstract:

The present investigation was aimed to study the effect of plant-mediated synthesized silver nanoparticles using curry leaves on pulse beetle, Callosobruchus chinensis (L.) to determine adult mortality, seed damage and seed weight loss. The effect of Ag NPs on pulse beetle, Callosobruchus chinensis (L.) was studied by rearing the insects and preparing bioassay by treating soybean seeds with two concentrations of synthesized and standard Ag NPs (35 and 70 ppm) at 1:0.3 seed to solution ratio. The adult mortality of 100.00% was observed in treatment S2@ 70 ppm on 7th day after treatment and B2 @ 70 ppm on 14th day after treatment. The minimum seed damage was recorded in treatment S2 (38.67%) followed by B2(42.00%)@ 70 ppm and the minimum seed weight loss was recorded in treatment S2 (0.78%) followed by B2 (0.96%) @ 70 ppm on 14th day after treatment.
