Abstract: A field experiment was conducted at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Vijayapura University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad during 2015-16 to assess the efficacy of different pesticides. The results revealed that application of Carbofuran 3G (30 kg/ha) was found superior over the other treatments (7.9 % dead hearts), followed by fipronil 5 SC (0.5 ml/litre), NSKE 5 %, imidacloprid 17.8 SL (0.3 ml/l), and phorate 10 G (40 kg/ha) for shoot fly management. Acephate 75 SP, fipronil 5 SC, Imidacloprid 17.8 SL and NSKE were promising insecticides for shoot bug and aphid management in sorghum.
