Abstract:
The experiment was conducted at Seed Technology Research Unit, Main Pearl Millet Research Station, J.A.U., Jamnagar during 2016-17 on chickpea with an objective to ascertain new insecticidal chemical against Callosobruchus chinensis, a major pests of stored chickpea seed. The observation on moisture content, germination and insect infestation were recorded at interval of three months of storage period. Moisture content in chick pea was found non-significant up to 6 months of storage period. The effect of different treatments on germination was found non-significant at up to 6 months of storage period. Among different insecticides, At 9 months, majority of the chick pea treated seeds were from damage except Chlorfenapyr @ 2 ppm (1.0%), Novaluron @ 5 ppm (1.0%), Rynaxypyr @ 2 ppm (1.33%) and control (11.33%). At 12 months, lowest incidence was recorded in Deltamethrin @ 1.0 ppm (3.0%) and it was at par with Emamectin benzoate @ 2 ppm, (3.33%) and in control it was 21.67 % seed damage.
