Author(s): AM Bharadiya and JB Bhut
Field experiments on effect of different insecticides against fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae Coquillett infesting sponge gourd was carried out during consecutive two years 2014 and 2015 at Agronomy Farm, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh. The five different insecticides were evaluated against the fruit fly, B. cucurbitae infesting sponge gourd. The insecticides abamectin 0.0025 per cent and emamectin benzoate 0.002 per cent were found most effective and economic and were statistically at par with each other. The significantly minimum fruit infestation 19.35 per cent with 32.01 per cent yield increased and net return Rs. 22695/ha was recorded in the treatment of abamectin. While in emamectin benzoate 20.62 per cent fruit infestation with 29.10 per cent yield increased and Rs. 20625/ha net return was recorded. However, the treatment of dichlorovos 0.07 per cent (22.65% fruit infestation with 26.32% increased yield and Rs. 18660/ha net return) was proved next best insecticide.
