Efficacy of Insecticides against Gram Pod Borer Helicoverpa armigera on Soybean
Keywords:Soybean, Helicoverpa armigera, indoxacarb, incidence, larva, imidacloprid, cypermethrin, profenophos, quinalphos, neem oil, yield
The effect of various insecticides on the larval incidence of pod borer Helicoverpa armigera in soybean revealed that indoxacarb 14.5SC (69.44%) followed by imidacloprid 17.8SL (62.65%), cypermethrin 10EC (58.06%), profenophos 50EC (54.05%), quinalphos 25EC (48.83%) and neem oil (40.59%) led to maximum reduction. Their effect on the yield of soybean revealed that the maximum yield was with indoxacarb 14.5EC (19.19) followed by others.
