Author(s): Mamta Devi Choudhary, KC Kumawat, RG Samota and Tejpal Bajaya
Abstract: Investigations on “Evaluation of sequences of integrated pest management practices against sesame leaf and capsule borer, Antigastra catalaunalis.” were conducted at Agronomy farm and Department of Entomology, S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner during Kharif, 2015 and 2016. A. catalaunalis were recorded as major insect pests of sesame during both the years of study. Total eleven treatments including untreated control were tested against A. catalaunalis for their efficacy. The integrated pest management modules viz. T2 (Hand picking+destruction of larvae/infested plant part+spinosad 45 SC+NSKE), T4 (Hand picking+destruction of larvae/infested plant part+indoxacarb 14.5 SC+NSKE), T1 (Hand picking+destruction of larvae/infested plant part+acephate 75 SP+NSKE) and standard check (carbaryl) were found effective in the management of A. catalaunalis. The highest seed yield of 8.21 q ha-1 was recorded in the plots treated with T2 (picking+destruction of larvae/infested plant part+spinosad 45 SC SC+NSKE) followed by T4 (Hand picking+destruction of larvae/infested plant part+indoxacarb 14.5 SC+NSKE), (8.18 q ha-1) and T1 (Hand picking+destruction of larvae/infested plant part+acephate 75 SP+NSKE) (8.16q ha-1). The highest B: C ratio was recorded in T9 (Greengram+ HPDL/DIPP+NSKE+ Chrysoperla zastrowi arabica (two releases) (8.69), followed by T8 (Greengram+ HPDL/DIPP+NSKE+ Trichogramma chilonis (two releases) (6.31).
