Management of Pod Borer in Gram Crop
Generally, a pod borer attack is observed at the flowering stage of the gram crop Strong growth of roots, rapid growth of buds and a high number of soft leaves are some of the favourable symptoms of pod borer outbreaks. Read the biological measures below for the control of pod borer.
• Crop rotation needs to be performed to control this pest.
• On the field, there should be 5 pheromone traps from the ground.
• As soon as the adult moth is caught in the trap, spray 5% neem extract. Use a sticker in the neem extract to spread on all canopies.
• By applying light traps in the field to one acre during the required period, these pests can be controlled.
• In the field, install 3-4 ‘T’ parches in 1 acre of land. This allows the birds to sit in on it and control the pests in a natural way.
• For the biological control of the pest, spray HANPV 250 L.EG dissolved in 200 litre of water.
