Abstract


An IPM technology involving non chemical and eco-friendly components
i.e. sex pheromone traps, integrated with other practices were tested for three years (2006 to 2008) against brinjal shoot and fruit borer (BSFB) at All India Coordinated Vegetable Improvement Project, M.P.K.V, Rahuri, India.  The study revealed that mass trapping of Leucinodes orbonalis moths with the help of plastic funnel traps @ 1 per 100 sq.m. baited with leucilure sex pheromone, clipping of infested shoots at weekly interval starting at 20 days after transplanting (DAT), spraying with NSKE 4% four times at an interval of 15 days starting at flowering and destruction of infested fruits after harvest had reduced the shoot infestation to the extent of 80.44% over untreated and 61.64% over without mass trapping. The increase in yield was 44.75% over untreated and 11.76% over without mass trapping.
