Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect on seed biopriming in integration of bio-pesticides on the infestation of pod borer complex of mungbean in the Institutional farm of Institute of Agriculture, Visva Bharati University during 2014-2015. Seed bio-priming was done by Pseudomonas fluorescence and other bio-agents, where the bio-pesticides used were Beauveria bassiana, Verticillium lecanii and Metarhizium anisopliae. Studies on different biochemical parameters of the plants were made to highlight on the impact on pod borer infestation. The results of the experiment suggested that seed bio-priming with Pseudomonas fluorescence along with consecutive spray of Beaveria bassiana and Verticillium lecanii were found effective to reduce the infestation of pod borer complex upto 75.02% as compared to untreated check. It also reduced the percentage of damaged pods upto 11.86%. However, Pseudomonas fluorescence had a clear impact towards enhancement of phenol and ortho-dihydroxy phenol content along with peroxidise activities in mungbean leaf thus imparting resistance to pod borer complex.
