Evaluation of Insecticides against Sucking Pests of Indian Bean
Keywords:Lablab purpureus, Aphis craccivora, Empoasca kerri, Bemisia tabaci, acetamiprid, thiamethoxam, buprofezin, thiacloprid, emamectin benzoate, indoxacarb, lambdacyhalothrin, novaluron
Among the various insecticides evaluated for their field efficacy against sucking pests of Indian bean, the treatments of thiamethoxam 25WG at 0.025%, acetamiprid 20SP at 0.004% and buprofezin 25SC at 0.05% were found to be the most effective against Aphis craccivora Koch, Empoasca kerri Pruthi and Bemisia tabaci Gennadius. While, thiacloprid 21.7SC at 0.012% emerged as the moderately effective. Emamectin benzoate 5SG at 0.002%, indoxacarb 14.5SC at 0.007%, lambda-cyhalothrin 5SC at 0.005% and novaluron 10EC at 0.01% were found to be less effective.
