Abstract:

The yellow stem borer, Scirpophaga incertulas(Walker) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is one of the major pests in all rice-growing regions of India. An experiment was conducted at Agricultural Research Station, Anand Agricultural University, Derol, Dist. Panchmahal, Gujarat, India during kharif(rainy) season in 2011 and 2012 to know the effect of soil and foliar application of silicon on the incidence of yellow stem borer, S. incertulas in rice. Four doses of calcium silicate (500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 kg/ha) applied as soil application and three concentrations of potassium silicate (0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 per cent) applied as foliar sprays were evaluated along with control. Soil application of calcium silicate @ 1500 and 2000 kg/ha significantly reduced dead heart and white ear head damage due to yellow stem borer, S. incertulas in rice. These treatments also increased grain and straw yield of rice.
