Abstract:

Field experiments were carried out in the farmer’s fields in five different villages  during 2013 and 2014 to evaluate two bio-intensive integrated pest management (BIPM) modules against Leucinodes orbonalis on brinjal which were compared with one insecticidal check along with farmers’ practice  to ascertain their effectiveness. The study evidenced the superiority of BIPM in all aspects viz., lesser shoot infestation (1.6-2.5 and 3-5.4%), lesser fruit damage(3.2-5.0 and 3-5.4%)and higher yield(261.2-299.1 and 254.5-276.7 Q/ha). Besides, the treatment BIPM proved its efficacy over farmer’s practice and untreated control especially with high percent increase of yield and percent reduction of shoot and fruit infestation. Apart from this the benefit cost ratio (BCR) ranked in the order of superiority as BIPM modules with (1: 8.19) and (1:8.55)which was greater than the farmer practice(1:2.10 and 1:2.75). The insecticide check had 282.7-315.4 and 276.9-302.8 quintals of yield,1.2-2.2, 1.9-2.8 and 2.9-4.5,2.8-4.9 percent reduction of shoot and fruit infestation which were at par with the BIPM modules. The present study indicates that BIPM is equally effective as that of insecticide application as evidenced from the insecticidal application and the yield was also equal to that of the insecticidal application.
