Experiments were conducted to evaluate insecticides and their combinations against major insect pest of soybean under field conditions in kharif season 2011-2012. The results revealed that Emamectin benzoate 5 SG @ 0.002% + Triazophos 40 EC @ 0.06%, Emamectin benzoate 5 SG @ 0.002%, Fenvalrate 20 EC @ 0.01%, Triazophos 40 EC @ 0.06% and Flubendiamide 20 WG @ 0.01% + Triazophos 40 EC @ 0.06% were proved to be significantly effective in managing the major insect pests of soybean and obtained comparatively highest yield, net monetary return and ICBR. All insecticides proved safer to lady bird beetle and non-phytotoxic. Hence, it is also concluded that above combinations found beneficial for the management of soybean pest.
