Give attention, those raised their pigeon pea early and now starting the flowering:
At this time, there may an attack of pod borer (Helicoverpa). These larvae can feed on flowers and also newly formed pods. The farmers who raised their pigeon pea crop nearer to okra or cotton field, the attack is generally much more and early. If pigeon pea cultivated along with maize crop, the infestation is generally found less. Do not spray synthetic insecticide as first spray on this crop; spray NPV @ 250 LU per hectare.
