Abstract:

An investigation was undertaken to identify synergism in efficacy of Neem Based Biopesticide (Econeem Plus®) and Bacillus thuringiensis formulation (Delfin®) against Spodoptera litura. Mortality was recorded at 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 days after treatment of 3rd instar larvae of Spodoptera litura. Combined application of Delfin and Econeem Plus resulted in 96% mortality over control as against 80% and 88% mortality respectively in individual treatments of Econeem Plus and Delfin. Similar trends were observed on Antifeedant index (86.3%) and growth inhibition (99.4%) by combined application of these products. Combination of Delfin® and Econeem Plus® was found to have more effect for control of Spodoptera litura.
