TOXICITY EVALUATION OF CERTAIN NOVEL ACARICIDES AGAINST BROAD MITE, POLYPHAGOTAR SONEMUS LATUS (BANKS) ON CHILLI CROP (CAPSICUM ANNUM L.) AND THEIR EFFECT ON IMPROVING YIELD OF CHILLISandeep Kumar Sathua, Shafia Zainab and R.N. Singh
Field experiment was conducted during kharif season for consecutive two years, i.e. 2014 and 2015 to evaluate bio-efficacy of certain acaricides viz. pyridaben 20% WP (different concentration), propargite 57% EC and fepyroximate 5% EC against broad mite on chilli crop (variety G-4) under field condition. The maximum suppression of mite population (80.42%) was recorded in propargite treated plots followed by pyridaben @ 125 g.a.i./ha (78.33%) and pyridaben @ 100 g.a.i./ha (75.29 %). Other treatments didnt show comparative effective result. The chilli yield obtained was also superior in case of propargite (2380.21 kg/ha) and pyridaben @ 125 g.a.i./ha (2265.33 kg/ha) in comparison to control plot (1263.25 kg/ha). In overall view the performance of both propargite and pyridaben @ 125 g.a.i./ha remained at par among other treatments both in terms of controlling chilli mite and increasing yield attributes of chilli fruits.
