Abstract:

A field trial was conducted to evaluate the bioefficacy of combinations of spinetoram 12 SC with fungicides / fertilizer / growth regulator, as foliar application on 90 days old Bt cotton against sucking pests and foliar diseases. The lowest mean population of aphids (3.93 / 3 leaves), leafhoppers (4.20 / 3 leaves), thrips (3.01 / 3 leaves), whiteflies (1.09/ 3 leaves) and mirid bugs (1.67 / five squares) were recorded in spinetoram 12 SC @ 1 ml + carbendazim 50WP @ 1.0 g with (64.99, 63.00, 83.60, 82.82 and 50.35) high per cent reduction over control, respectively. Treatments, spinetoram in combination with carbendazim and copper oxychloride were recorded high per cent disease over control (34.05 and 30.87) for Alternaria blight and Bacterial blight, respectively. Spinetoram in combination with carbendazim and copper oxychloride were found to be more effective in reducing the sucking pests population and foliar diseases incidence, and safer to the three natural enemies (coccinellids, chrysopids and spiders) in cotton crop.
