Abstract

Bhendi seed yield and yield attributes are mainly influenced by attack of leaf hoppers and fruit borers. The field experiment was conducted during rabi season 2004 to study the effect of seed treatment and foliar spray with insecticides and neem products on seed yield and yield attributes in Bhendi Cv Arka Anamika . The results revealed that seed treatment with imidacloprid @ 12 ml per kg of seed or thiomethoxam @ 10 g per kg of seed were found effective in controlling leaf hoppers resulted in higher seed yield ( 642 and 620 kg per ha respectively). Where as foliar spray with fenvalerate @ 0.5 ml per liter was effective in controlling fruit borer infestation which inturn produced higher seed yield (799 kg/ha).
