Chlorantraniliprole 4.3% + Abamectin 1.7% SC: A Safer Insecticide to Natural Enemies (Spiders and Coccinellids) in Tomato Ecosystem

S Selvaraj, RS Bisht and A Kuzhandhaivel Pillai

Two field experiments were conducted to study the impact of new formulation of Cholrantraniliprole 4.3% + Abamectin 1.7% SC on spiders and coccinellids occurring on tomato during 2011-2013 in Pantnagar of Uttarakhand. Cholrantraniliprole 4.3% + Abamectin 1.7% SC @ 24, 30, 36, 60 g a.i. ha-1 were tested along with standard check, Cholrantraniliprole 18.5% SC @ 30 g a.i. ha-1, Abamectin 1.9 EC @ 15 g a.i. ha-1 and Lambda cyhalothrin 4.9 CS @ 15 g a.i. ha-1. Results showed that the new formulation was found to be safer to spiders and coccinellids at all concentrations tested. The highest population was recorded in plots treated with Cholrantraniliprole 4.3% + Abamectin 1.7% SC @ 24 g a.i. ha-1 followed by Cholrantraniliprole 4.3% + Abamectin 1.7% SC @ 30 g a.i. ha-1. The present findings revealed that natural enemy population was noticeably lower up to 5 days after application of insecticides. Thereafter, the natural enemy populations had gradually increased from chlorantraniliprole+abamectin treated plots at different doses during both the years.
