Abstract

The pod-protectants like chlorpyriphos (2.5 ml L−1) and imidacloprid (1 ml L−1) gave complete control of bruchid by preventing egg laying and minimizing adult development in the treated pods. Neem based insecticides and fly ash were also found promising as protectants for groundnut pods. None of the protectants affected germinability of groundnut.
