VG Kharade, DS Mutkule and VM Sakhare
The present field experiment were conducted to evaluate “Bio-efficacy of newer insecticides against sucking insect-pests on brinjal” under field condition during kharif season of 2017 at Oilseed Research Station, Latur, Maharashtra, India. The treatments of different insecticides viz., imidacloprid 0.0044 per cent, dimethoate 0.04 per cent, quinalphos 0.05per cent, emamectin benzoate 0.002 per cent, chlorantraniliprole 0.0074 per cent and indoxacarb 0.019 per cent were evaluated against jassid, Amrasca biguttula biguttula and whitefly, Bemisia tabaci revealed that imidacloprid 0.0044 per cent was found most effective treatment in reducing the population of jassid (1.03 jassids/3 leaves) and whitefly (1.32 whiteflies/3 leaves) respectively. Followed by dimethoate 0.04 per cent which was found to be statistically at par with chlorantraniliprole 0.0074 per cent.
