EFFICACY OF IMIDACLOPRID (CONFIDOR 200 SL) AGAINST APHIDS INFESTING WHEAT CROP
2009, 10 (3) p. 217-221
Imidacloprid (Confidor 200 SL) was evaluated either alone or with a fungicide (Tilt 0.01%) against wheat aphids. There were seven different treatments, including an untreated control. All the treatments were replicated three times in a similar field environment. Population of wheat aphids was recorded on randomly selected five plants in each plot at different intervals, both before and after the spraying. Confidor 200 SL @ 400 ml/ha treatment was found most effective against wheat aphids. However, mixing of Confidor 200 SL @ 100 ml/ha with Tilt @ 0.01 %, was found significantly least effective for wheat aphids control.
