Abstract:

Resultantly, in cabbage growing ecosystem of Karnataka as many as 33 insecticides are being used, in which 58 % insecticide are not having crop label. Majority of Bidar, Belagavi, Raichur, Chikmagalur and Hassan district farmers were relied on organophosphate insecticides to manage insect pest in cabbage crop while Bengaluru, Mysuru and Chamrajnagar districts farmer are mainly dependent on diamides and combination products for the management of cabbage pests. Profenofos, fipronil, emamectin benzoate and chlorantraniliprole were predominately spraying chemicals throughout the cabbage growing areas of Karnataka. Cabbage farmers of all nine spatially isolated districts used the insecticides at higher than the recommended dosage. Further, total number of sprays was Maximum in Haveri (14-16 sprays) while minimum in Bidar (6-8 sprays) during a cropping season. The research has exposed some of overuse, misuse and abuse of pesticides among farmers.
