Abstract:

The experiment entitled “Efficacy of biopesticides against white grub, Leucopholis lepidophora(Blanchard) infesting sugarcane” was conducted in 2019-20 as pot culture experiment with nine treatments, replicated thrice was conducted by using ‘Completely Randomized Block Design’ in Entomology Section, RCSM College of Agriculture, Kolhapur with the objectives, to study the efficacy of biopesticides available in market for the management of white grub under pot culture and to study combined effect of biopesticides against white grub under pot culture experiment. The treatments for pot culture experiment consisted of Metarhizium anisopliae(Grub Guard), M. anisopliae(NBAIR – Ma4), EPN- H. indica (Grub Nash), EPN- H. indica (Solider), EPN- H. indica (Neema Power), UrvaPinaca, Chlorpyrifos and untreated control. In the pot culture experiment 27.41 – 82.14 per cent grub mortality of the white grub was observed at 7 DAT, 15 DAT and 30 DAT. The efficacy of biopesticides against white grub of sugarcane under pot culture experiment revealed that M. anisopliae(NBAIR – Ma4) + EPN (Grub Nash) was the most effective in controlling white grub (58.12 per cent). The treatments with EPN (Grub Nash) 37.61 per cent followed by M. anisopliae(Grub Guard) and M. anisopliae(NBAIR – Ma4) were next in order of efficacy. Treatment UrvaPinaca found to be least effective against white grub control. The next safe insecticide was Chlorpyrifos.
