A field experiments was conducted at NHRDF, Regional Research Station, Chitegaon, Nashik in three consecutive years during rabi 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 on onion variety NHRDF Red-2 for the management of onion thrips through basal application and spray of different insecticides. The soil application of the treatments was given before planting and spray was started at 10 DAP after the appearance of thrips and subsequently sprays were given at ten days interval. The results showed that, significantly lowest mean thrips population (17. 21 nymphs/plant) and highest seed yield (4.91q/ha) were recorded in basal application of Chlorantraniliprole 0.4% @ 10Kg/ha and spray of Fipronil @ 0.1%, Carbosulfan @ 0.2%, Profenofos @ 0.1% and Spinosad @ 0.03%. The highest cost benefit ratio (1:4.19) was also recorded in the same treatment.
