Efficacy of insecticides against infestation of brinjal fruit borer, Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee (Pyralidae: Lepidoptera) under field conditions

Sajjad Anwar, Jan Muhammad Mari, Muhammad Ali Khanzada, Farman Ullah

The present study was carried out at Agricultural research institute, Tarnab, Peshawar during 2011 to study the efficacy of different insecticides against Brinjal fruit borer. The insecticides tested were: spinosad, emamectin benzoate, chlorpyrifos, profenofos, fenvalerate and cypermethrin and were compared with a control. Results showed that emamectin benzoate was most effective against brinjal fruit borer and resulted in lower infestation (40.1%) followed by cypermethrin (40.43%), whereas fenvalerate offered moderate control (41.31%) of borers. The study recommended the use of emamectin benzoate for effective control of brinjal fruit borer.
