Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during kharif - 2001 to evaluate the bio-efficacy of certain newer acaricide molecules against the chilli mite Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks). The study revealed that the acaricide, Fenpropathrin @ 2 ml/lit exhibited 82.16 and 81.32 per cent reduction of mite population over control at three days after first and second application, respectively with the maximum yield of 2074 kg/ha as against 1537 kg/ha in untreated check.
