Bioefficacy of promising insecticides against maggot population of pigeonpea pod fly, Melanagromyza obtusa (Malloch)

B Chiranjeevi and SV Sarnaik

The present studies revealed the treatment with chlorantriniliprole 18.5 SC @ 30 g a.i. per ha was found best with minimum maggot population of M. obtusa at first and second spray i.e. 34.33, 16.33, 11.67, 10.67 and 18.00; and 30.33, 34.33, 12.00, 9.33 and 19.33 maggots per 100 pods on one, three, seven, ten and fourteen days after first and second spray and it was followed by neem oil @ 3%. The least effective treatment was Eucalyptus oil @ 5% with maximum population at first and second spray i.e. 44.67, 42.67, 38.67, 39.33 and 46.33; and 40.33, 44.67, 38.00, 35.00 and 46.00 pod fly maggots per 100 pods at one, three, seven, ten and fourteen days after first and second spray. The result revealed that chlorantriniliprole 18.5 SC @ 30 g a.i. per ha was found best treatment in respect of minimum maggot population after the both insecticidal spray.
