Abstract:

The field investigation was carried out to evaluate the acaricidal property of certain very common indigenous and endemic medicinal herbs in field conditions against citrus leaf mite, P. citri at Madurai Agricultural College and Research Institute during summer 2018. Among the herbal extracts evaluated, Citrulus fruit extract registered 74.90 per cent of mite reduction which was closely followed by basil leaf extract (68.12 % reduction) and notchi leaf extract (61.75 % reduction) over untreated check, coupled with higher fruit yield (9.60 t/ha, 8.50 t/ha, 8.10 t/ha) and increased cost benefit ratio (1:2.2, 1:2.0, 1:1.9), respectively.
