Influence of intercropping on incidence of gram Pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera) in chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)

Aditya A Patil, Sasya Thakur, Navale JS, Narode MK and Kolhe PS

An Experiment was conducted during the period from November 2017 to April 2018 to study 7 intercropping systems with chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) on the incidence of gram pod borer at the department of the Entomology field, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture and Technology Science, Allahabad. The study aimed to get the yield advantages and economic gains from the randomized block design including three replication and seven treatments. In this experiment intercropping has been done as treatment; within the base crop of chickpea. Seven treatments included in this study viz.; T1 Chickpea + Coriander, T2 Chickpea + Wheat, T3 Chickpea + Mustard, T4 Chickpea + Tomato, T5 Chickpea + Safflower, T6 Chickpea + Lentil, T7 Chickpea Sole. Lowest percent pod damage was recorded in Chickpea + Coriander and it was followed by Chickpea + Lentil, Chickpea + Safflower, Chickpea + Tomato, Chickpea + Mustard, Chickpea + Wheat. Chickpea sole was found with highest pod damage percent. As considered intercrops; coriander and wheat were not infected by H. armigera. Lowest infected intercrop was lentil followed by safflower, tomato and highest infection in mustard.
