V.B. Jadhav, S.N. Gohil and R.V.Patil

Abstract

Field trials were conducted using different combinations of fenvalerate 0.005%, monocrotophos 0.05 % and neem seed bitter (1%) to test their efficacy against citrus leaf miner on acid lime during 1999, 2000 and 2001. The studies over three years indicated the efficacy of monocrotophos 0.05 % which gave immediate knockdown effect. Spray with monocrotophos 0.05 `,Y0 followed by sameresulted in minimum leaf infestation i.e. 18.78, 22.60 and 25.20% on 3rd, Th and 14' day respectively after spray. Next in order of efficacy were fenvalerate 0.005% followed by monocrotophos 0.05 % and fenvalerate 0.005% followed by same.
