Field evaluation of spinetoram 12 SC mixtures against blue butterfly, Lambides boeticus on pigeonpea

A Sanjeevi Kumar and N Muthukrishnan

Pigeonpea pods are infested by several pod borers. Lambides boeticus is the predominant pod borer species in Tamil Nadu in pigeonpea and responsible for considerable yield loss. Effect of a new biological insecticide molecule, spinetoram 12 SC alone and in combination with quinalphos 25 EC 350 g a.i./ha, carbendazim 50 WP 125 g a.i./ha and urea (2%) was studied on L. boeticus at field conditions during 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 kharif seasons. The results of the field experiments showed that Spinetoram 12 SC 45 g alone and in combination with quinalphos 25 EC 350 g a.i./ha, carbendazim 50 WP 125 g a.i./ha and urea (2%) were significantly effective in minimizing the L. boeticus when sprayed thrice at 15 days interval and increases the grain yield. All the tested doses of spinetoram 12 SC 45 g alone and in combination with quinalphos 25 EC 350 g a.i./ha, carbendazim 50 WP 125 g a.i./ha and urea (2%) were showed nil phytotoxic symptoms on pigeonpea plants.
