Title : Evaluation of various synthetic Insecticides against White fly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) in Clusterbean

Abstract :

Experiments were conducted during three consecutive Kharif seasons at the Experimental Farm of Agricultural Research Station, Navgaon, Alwar (Rajasthan), to study the effect of commercially available insecticides formulations, Acetamaprid 20 % SP (1.0 gm/ litre of water), Imidacloprid 17.8 % SL (1.0 ml/ lit.), Quinalphos % 25 EC (2.0 ml/ lit.), Thiomethoxam 25 % WG (1.0 gm/ lit.), Neem oil 2% (20 ml/lit.), Karanj oil 2% (20 ml/lit.) against the White fly, Bemisia tabaci in Clusterbean. The descending order of most effective insecticides was: Imidacloprid > Thiomethoxam> Acetamaprid. During the 2015 year the maximum population reduction over control was found after 7 days of applying the second spray at 15 days of interval viz., 82.17 and 77.91 per cent due to Imidacloprid, Thiomethoxam, respectively. A similar trend was found in 2016 and 2017. Thus, Imidacloprid was found most effective against the White fly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae).
