Abstract:

The studies carried out on field survey and estimation of residual toxicity of insecticides used in mulberry growing area of karnataka. The field survey among 120 farmers in villages of Ramanagara, Chikkaballapur and Kolar districts revealed that the maximum toxicity of pesticides was due to the drift effect (66 farmers) followed by direct effect (38 farmers) and about 16 farmers were without any pesticide problem. Among 120 farmers 39 farmers preferred Chlorantrntraniliprole followed by Flubendamide (25 farmers), Dichlorvos (16 farmers), Imidacloprid (12 farmers), Carbaryl (6 farmers), Dimethoate (3 farmers) and Chlorpyrifos (3 farmers). The widely used pesticide is subjected for residue analysis. Results of analysis of fifteen mulberry leaf and soil samples collected from different sericulture farmer fields in Kolar and Chikkaballapura district for insecticides residue. Showed that out of fifteen samples, six samples had detectable level of pesticides residue highest residual toxicity effect is due to Chlorantraniliprole insecticide is came to know from this research.
