Abstract:
An experiment was conducted in the experimental laboratory of Agronomy Department, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, in 2016 to 2018, to study the “Innovative approach for the use of rice husk ash on controlling insect pests on storage of pea seeds, (Garden pea- Pisum sativum var. hortense L.) under Manipur condition. It was observed that when we mixed the rice husk ash with pea seeds and stored in the ratio pea: rice husk ash (1: 0.25 and above 250g of rice husk ash), there was no loss of the pea seeds from the insect pests. In control i.e. T1 (pea seeds without rice husk ash) was found 100% damage in one year and less damage from T2 toT4 where treatments with pea seeds: rice husk ash were 1:0.10, 1:0.15, and 1:0.20 respectively.
