Investigations on “Effect of plant oils and insecticides impregnated packaging materials on Rhyzopertha dominica in stored barley” were conducted at Department of Entomology, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner during 2016 and 2017. The bags (plastic fiber and gunny) impregnated with deltamethrin 2.8 EC (0.075%) was found most effective to reduce adult emergence, grain damage and weight loss by R. dominica in barley grains, followed by malathion 50 EC (0.1%), delatmethrin (0.05%), neem oil (10.0%), deltamethrin (0.025%), malathion (0.075%) castor oil (10.0%) and neem oil (7.5%).
