Effects of conventional pesticide and cultural packages on damage and yield differences of cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata) by diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella L.)

Genesis Acaye, David Ocan, Julius CW Odongo

Different cultural packages in controlling diamondback moth (DBM) on damage and yield differences of Copenhagen market cabbage variety were assessed. ‘Neem leaf extract+tomato intercrop+manure+mulch’; ‘Tomato intercrop+manure+mulch’; and ‘Neem leaf extract+manure+mulch’ treatments were compared with a popular commercial pesticide i.e. (Dimethoate) and Unsprayed treatments used as the control. Field experiments laid in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications were carried out between August and December in 2013 and between July and December in 2014 at Koro and Bungatira Sub-counties, respectively, in Gulu district. Significant difference (P<0.05) was observed in the levels of damage scores between Dimethoate treatment and all the cultural packages except for treatment comprising the ‘Neem leaf extract+tomato intercrop+manure+mulch’. Treatments that received manure clearly performed better (P<0.05) than those without manure. The result revealed no evidence to believe that there was significant difference (P<0.05) between ‘Neem leaf extract+tomato intercrop+manure+mulch’ treatment and the conventional dimethoate pesticide in the control of DBM.
