In this experiment, aphids fed on maize were treated with synthetic pyrethroid, cypermethrin under field conditions in Faisalabad. Data was recorded on different dates after a specific time interval. Three replications in each treatment were used for this experiment and ten plants were sampled in each replication. Three different concentrations were used at low, recommended (standard) and high and were further compared with control variety. Mortality results showed, at low concentration there was less mortality of aphids. While on standard concentration medium mortality was observed. While at higher concentration there was high mortality as compared to control. These results can be helpful in précising the sprayed pesticides in the maize fields. These results can further be helpful in spraying pesticides to control aphids under field conditions.
