Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted on marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) to evaluate few insecticidal molecules, viz., novaluron, carbosulfan, imidachloprid, bifentrhin, methyl-o-demeton, chlorpyriphos dust, neem oil, propargite and thiamethoxam alone against the field populations of Tetranychus urticae Koch during 2014 and 2015 at the Research Farm, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Jammu, India. The results indicated that propargite showed higher efficacy against T. urticae in reducing pest population. Mean population of T. urticae after two sprays revealed that propargite 0.800% was effective and superior. The next best were imidacloprid 0.008% and thiamethoxam 0.100% which were at par. Bifenthrin 0.050% and novaluron 0.100% were found to be least effective against T. urticae.
