Abstract:

Eleven acaricides including one control, were evaluated at field condition on the chilli yellow mite and on its natural enemies Amblyseius sp. in Varanasi, U. P. The numbers of yellow mites were recorded in 1 cm2 area at four spots on 30 leaves per treatments at 1, 3, 7 and 14 days interval after the spray and the predatory mite populations were counted on weekly interval after spray. Among treatments, Abamectin recorded highest yellow mite mortality with 89.94%, followed by Diafenthiuron (82.27%) and Milbemectin (77.27%). In case of the predator Amblyseius sp., cent percent mortality was seen by Fenzaquin10 EC, followed by Ethion 50 EC. The pesticides like Diafenthiuron 50 SC (3.02), Sulphur 80 WP and Azadirachtin 10000 PPM were proved to be safer to Amblyseius sp., so could be recommended for use in integrated chilli mite pest management practices.
