IMIDACLOPRID AND THIAMETHOXAM FOR THE CONTROL OF OKRA LEAFHOPPER Amrasca biguttula biguttula (Ishida)
Efficay of imidacloprid and thiamethoxam was evaluated on okra leafhopper, Amrasca bigutlula bigutlula (Ishida). Field experiments were conducted at the Indian Institute of Horticultural Research (IIHR) Bangalore on okra variety, Arka Anamika during khartf 1999 and summer, 2000. Results indicated that thiamoxam 25 WG was on par with imidacloprid (Gaucho 600 FS) seed treatment @ 12 ml/kg of seed in reducing the leafhcpper infestation. Lower concentrations of imidacloprid seed treatment were less effective. All the doses of imidacloprid and thiamoxam had no phytotoxic effect on okra. The utility of imidacloprid for the control of okra lealhopper is discussed.
