Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted to evaluate the pest management strategies against sucking insect-pests for the safety of beneficial insects in vegetable French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) during rabi 2013 at SKUAST-Jammu. French bean crop is ravaged by wide array of insect pests wherein, sucking insect-pests like aphids and mites causing considerable damage. Three different IPM modules viz., Module-I (Deep ploughing, Cabofuran 3G@ 25 kg/ha, Pheromone traps@ 20/ha, Spinosad 48 SC@ 1 %, Indoxacarb14.5 SC @0.05 %), Module-II (Deep ploughing, Cabofuran 3G@ 25 kg/ha, Delta traps@ 100/ha, Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki, 90-120 billion spores /g@ 500g per hectare, Imidacloprid 17.8 SL @0.05 %) and Module-III (Deep ploughing, Cabofuran 3G@ 25 kg/ha, Fruit fly traps@50/ha, Beauvaria bassiana @1.2 ×1013 conidia/ha, Thiomethoxam 25WG @0.1 %) were evaluated in comparison with the farmer’s practice and control plot to manage the pests in an eco-friendly manner. Among the modules tested, Module-II was found to be the best treatment for controlling the bean aphids and safer for the aphids parasitoids in parasitzing the aphids population while, Module-III was found to be the best in suppressing the mite population and quite safe for maintaining the predators like Chrysoperla carnea for natural predation.
