Abstract:

The two field experiments were conducted at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu to evaluate bioefficacy, phytotoxicity effect if any of fipronil 200 SC w/v against aphids, thrips, fruit borer and its safety to non target invertebrates in chilli during June – October 2014 and 2015. The results revealed fipronil 200 SC w/v @ 50 g ai ha-1 was found as efficient treatment in reducing aphids, thrips and fruit borer. The pooled mean population (two consecutive seasons) of aphids and fruit borer larvae was recorded as 0.37 five leaves-1 and 0.43 plant -1 respectively. Cent per cent reduction in thrips population was observed. The imposed treatments were found safer to non target invertebrates like spiders and coccinellids. Furthermore, no phytotoxic effect was observed even in treatments imposed with fipronil 200 SC @ 50, 100 and 200 g ai ha-1.
