Susceptibility of three biocontrol agents of brinjal insect pests to seven selected insecticides
Susceptibility of three biological control agents of Brinjal insect pests to seven selected insecticides were evaluated. Lowest mortality (6.67 %) of Camponotus compressus was found in Bactoil and Nimbicidene 0.03 EC treated brinjal and the highest mortality (100%) was recorded from Necstar-50 EC and Booster-10 EC treatments. The lowest mortality of Micraspis crocera Muls was recorded from Bactoil (3.67%) treatment while the highest mortality of Micraspis crocera Muls was found in Necstar-50 EC (100.00%) and Booster-10 EC (100.00%) treated brinjal. In case of Trathala emergence from infested shoot, the highest percentage (22.22%) was observed in the untreated control plots and lowest emergence was in Necstar-50 EC (2.22%) and Proclaim-5 SG (3.33%) treated brinjal shoots. In case of the infested fruit specimen, the highest (22.22%). Trathala emergence was found in the untreated control plots followed by the plots treated with Bactoil (18.89 %) and Nimbicidene 0.03 EC (17.78 %) while the lowest was in Necstar-50 EC (1.11%) and Booster-10 EC (2.22 %) treated brinjal fruits. Compatibility factor was highest for Bactoil (13.94, 25.33 and 27.92 with C. compressus, M. crocera and Trathala, respectively) and was lowest for Booster-10 EC (0.86, 0.86 and 4.30 with C. compressus, M. crocera and Trathala, respectively). Therefore Bactoil, Nimbicidene 0.03 EC and Tracer-45 SC were found to be the most compatible insecticides for controlling the Brinjal shoot and fruit boruss.
