Abstract


Field experiments on effectiveness of different insecticides against inflorescence thrips, Scirtothrips
dorsalis Hood (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) in mango were carried out at Horticulture Farm, Junagadh Agricultural
University, Junagadh, India during 2013-14 and 2014-15. All the treatments were significantly superior over untreated
check. Results indicated that the maximum reduction of hopper population was recorded in the treatment of spinosad 45
SC (0.13%) and it was statistically at par with acetamiprid 20 SP (0.01%)and carbosulfan 25 EC (0.05%) after third and
seventh day of first and second spray in both years. The highest population of thrips per inflorescence found in treatment
flubendiamide 480 SC, 0.14% and chlorfenapyr 10 SC (0.0075%).
