Abstract

Management of Callosobruchus chinensis L. was studied in the laboratory of Entomology of BSMRAU during 2017-2018 using seven mungbean varieties. BU mug 2, BU mug 3, BU mug 4, BU mug 5, Binamoog-5, BARI Mung-6 and BARI Mung-8 were used as the seed materials against three treatments consisting neem oil, emamectin benzoate 5 SG and untreated control. The control measures, percentage of seed damage, percentage of weight loss, number of live adults of C. chinensis in representative sample, seed germination (%) and seed moisture content (%) were observed. Different aspects of seed quality parameters were evaluated by botanicals and chemicals against the C. chinensis. Both the treatments were found effective without affecting less the germination and moisture content and controlled the pulse beetle infestation effectively compared to untreated control.
