Abstract:

A laboratory experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of Phytoextracts against Lesser grain borer, Rhizopertha dominica (Fab.) in stored Wheat. Influence of phytoextracts also computed on the basis of adult mortality, emergence and developmental period of Rhizopertha dommica (Fab.). The maximum adult mortality was recorded in ethanol extracts of Neem (90.0%) followed by Thuja (87.67%) and Gulabaas (87.67%). The highest mortality observed in solvent ethanol in contrast to water extract except Dudhi and Neem. The lowest adult emergence was found in Gulabaas (2.0), Neem (2.0), Thuja (2.0) and Tridex (2.33) with solvent ethanol. The development period was maximum in water extract of Gulabaas (31.7day) among the treatments.
