A field experiment was conducted in farmer’s holding at Vinayagapuram village of Melur Taluk,
of Madurai District, Tamil Nadu to adopt various eco-friendly measures to control spotted beetle
damage in Brinjal. In that experiment, Farm Yard Manure (FYM), Biofertilizers, Poultry manure,
Neem cake and Mahua Cake were used as organic sources of nutrients for the management of beetle
damage in brinjal. From the study conducted the treatment involving FYM+biofertilizers+ neem
cake recorded high per cent reduction of beetle infestation over NPK as inorganic form. Next to this
was FYM + biofertilizers + mahua cake treatment. The highest fruit yield of (16.65 t/ha) was also
noticed in the promising treatment.
