A field trial was conducted at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences (ZAHRS), UAHS, Hiriyur during 2015-16 to find out eco-friendly management tactics for the suppression of shoot fly in little millet. The results revealed that, among the different treatments seed treatment with imidacloprid 600 FS @ 5.0 ml/ kg seed, soil application of carbofuran 3G were found effective in reducing the oviposition and per cent dead heart by shoot fly followed by NSKE @ 5 % and azadirachtin @ 1 % in both kharif and rabi. Among the organics, all were inferior in reducing the oviposition as well as per cent dead heart by shoot fly except neem cake @ 250 kg/ha. Organic amendments and botanicals conserved more coccinellids compared to insecticides. Highest grain yield, fodder yield and B: C ratio obtained in imidacloprid 600 FS seed treatment and carbofuran 3G both in kharif and rabi followed by NSKE @ 5 %.

Keywords: Little millet, Shoot fly management, Organic amendments, Botanicals, Insecticides.
