Author(s): LB Patil and CS Patil
Abstract: Field experiments were undertaken at the Department of Agril. Entomology, Post Graduate Institute, MPKV, Rahuri, India to study bioefficacy of Basil oil (Ocimum tenuiflomm syn. O. sanctum) (0.2%), geranium oil (0.2%) along with commonly used synthetic insecticides viz., fipronil 5 SC (0.005%) profenophos 50 EC (0.05%), acephate 75 SP @ (0.075%), N.S.E (4%) and dimethoate @ (0.06%) against onion thrips, Thrips tabaci Lind, during 2013-14 and 2014-15. The data revealed that fipronil 0.005 per cent excelled over all other treatments and was effective in controlling thrips population.
