Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during the year 2001 to evaluate the bio efficacy of certain newer insecticide molecules like applaud, etofenprox and danitol. The study revealed that application of applaud 25 SC registered more than 80 per cent reduction of hopper population over control, on the 14th day after first and second application at both the doses. Hence, applaud @ 1 ml/lit can be a better alternative to most of the conventional insecticide molecules currently in use.
