Abstract

Field experiment was conducted to know the efficacy of plant products viz., Neem oil 3.0%,
Illupai oil 3.0%, Neem cake Extract (NCE) 5.0%, Neem Seed Kernel Extract (NSKE) 5.0%, Eucalyptus
Leaf Extract 5.0%, Acacia holosericia leaf extract 5.0% as well as NSKE combined with half dose of
monocrotophos 0.025%, chlorpyriphos 0.025%, endosulfan 0.035% in comparison with conventional
insecticides, endosulfan 0.07% and dichlorvos 0.08% against the spotted pod borer, Maruca vitrata
(Geyer) in short duration pigeonpea APK 1 during Kharif 2004 and 2005 at National Pulses Research
Centre, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Vamban. The results showed that Neem oil 3.0% and
NSKE 5.0% were found effective in reducing the larval population and obtaining higher yields,
followed by the NSKE combined with half dose of insecticides. However, the conventional insecticides
endosulfan 0.07% and dichlorvos 0.08% were superior to all other treatments.
