Abstract

The bio-efficacy, phytotoxicity and residual field trials of Emamectin benzoate 5%SG against fruit and shoot borer in brinjal, was conducted at Regional Research Sub-station (T.Z) UBKV, Kharibari, West Bengal during June to November, 2018-2019 and October to March, 2019-2020 as per the recommended agricultural practices. The test chemical Emamectin Benzoate 5% SG was evaluated at different doses of 175, 200, 225 gm/ha and compared Indoxacarb 14.5% SC @ 400 ml/ha, Lambda Cyhalothrin 5% EC @ 300 ml/ha and Thiodicarb 75%WP @ 1000 g/ha as standard check and with an untreated check. Among these Emamectin Benzoate 5% SG @ 225 g/ha was found most effective.
