EFFECT OF BOTANICAL AND SYNTHETIC PESTICIDES IN CONTROLLING EPILACHNA BEETLE AND THE YIELD OF BITTER GOURD (Pages : 23 - 26)

M. A. RAHAMAN, M. D. H. PRODHAN AND A. K. M. MONJURE MAULA

The study was conducted at the farmers of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) partner organization namely CVDP (Community Village Development Programme), Sirajgonj during the year 2005-2006 to find out the possibility of the management of epilachna beetle using botanical and synthetic pesticides. A total of three approaches viz., Tephrosia leaf extract (20g fresh leaves/100ml water), Diazinon 60 EC @ 2 ml/L of water and an untreated control were evaluated. The Tephrosia leaf extract performed well for effective control of epilachna beetle with its different stages and also performed highest yield followed by a synthetic pesticide (Diazinon 60 EC). On the other hand the highest plant infestation was observed in untreated control and also performed lowest yield. The Tephrosia leaf extract is inhibiting or killing the beetle and treated as a environment friendly pest control method. Download
