Cite article:- Shivaprasad M., Chittapur B.M., Mohankumar H.D., Astaputre S.A., Tatagar M.H., Mesta R.K. (2024). ECO-FRIENDLY APPROACHES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF MURDA COMPLEX IN CHILLI. Agricultural Reviews. 31(4): 298 - 304. doi: .
Murda complex is one of the important diseases of chilli caused by the interaction of
virus and carriers such as mites and thrips. Though insecticidal intervention brought down
the pest population they have led to the problem of residues in the fruits. The presence of
pesticide residues has seriously affected the export of chillies. Bydagi chilli lots were rejected
at the international ports of the importing countries very often due to large pesticide residue.
The indiscriminate use of chemicals has led to many undesirable problems like pest
resurgence, destruction of natural enemies, environmental pollution etc. Hence it is
imperative to produce pesticide free chilli by adopting eco-friendly management practices
such as planting date, use of intercrops, use of mulches, host plant resistance, use of microorganisms,
use of indigenous materials, botanicals, bioagents and use of silica are the ecofriendly
approaches for the management of murda complex in chilli.
