Chemical control of Groundnut bruchid

Chemical Control of bruchid

  • Chemical insecticides should only be applied if the insect population crosses the economic threshold level (ETL).
  • Pods mixed with ABC (Attapulgite based clay) dust (5 g/kg pods) remain free from bruchid infestation for one year.
  • Pods for seed purpose can be treated with thiram (3 g/kg pods) and kept free from infestation for one year.
  • Celphos fumigation (3 g tablet per sack of groundnut (40 kg)) is also found effective in controlling the pest.
