Successful integression of IPM package in farmers’ participatory seed production field of favourable lowland ecology
Seed treatment of Pooja and Gayatri varieties with 2% carbendazim before sowing and need based application of 0.5% neem oil + 2% detergent liquid or 0.05% imidacloprid or 2% chlorpyrifos as foliar spray for swarming caterpillar /case worm/BPH/YSB high brood kept the rice crop pest and disease free in on-farm IPM testing. Monitoring of pest occurrence was the key factor leading to success which ensured treatment at the initial stage of crop infestation/infection. Quality pesticide/botanical played an important role for the success.
