Biological Control of leaf miner in groundnut
- Release Trichogramma Chilonis @ 50000/ha twice (7-10 days interval)
- Conserve the natural bio control population of spiders, long horned grasshoppers, praying mantis, robar fly, ants, green lace wing, damsel flies/dragon flies, flower bugs, shield bugs, lady bird beetles, ground beetle, predatory cricket, earwig, braconids, trichogrammatids, NPV, green muscular fungus.
- Mulching with rice straw causes reduction in leaf miner incidence and increase in percentage parasitism.
- Intercropping groundnut with Pennisetum glacum enhanced the parasitoid Goniozus spp. on leaf miner.
