     Plant Protection Research Achievements

        Kharif-2015 (Non plan)

  1. To study major insect pest complex and their natural parasite and predator on pigeon pea in changing climatic condition.The crop was infested by pod fly, Melanogromyza obtusa  and gram pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera in the month of February and March. Predators ie. Praying mantis species  and lady bird beetles were recorded during the month of Feb., & March.
  2. Effect of novel insecticides against fruit borer Erias vitella on okra.The spraying of imidacloprid  17.8 SL@ 1ml/liter of  water was found most effective  against fruit borer, Erias vitella providing highest yield 5.450 kg/plot. The other treatments viz. Indoxacarb, fipronil and profenfos + cypermethrin reduced the infestation  but were statistically  non significant  in reduction of population of fruit borer as well yield.Rabi 2016 (Non Plan)
    1. Screening of tomato cultivar/verities against root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita Race-IV Out of twenty one cultivars only three 6520, 6525 and 7016 were found moderately resistant having 28.40, 22.80 and 27.20 galls/plant. All other  18 cultivars ranged in recording 41.80 to 87 galls/plant.
    2. Screening of various insecticides against coccinellid beetle, Coccinella septempunctata The toxic effect of four insecticides ie. Imidacloprid, indoxacarb, novaluran and chlorpyriphos were tested against coccinella septempunctata. The aphid treated with the insecticides were given to predators as feed. Out of four imidacloprid and indoxacarb @ of 0.5ml/lit. water were found safe for the predators which recorded only 6.67% mortality after 48 hrs. Remaining chemicals showed highly toxic effect and mortality ranged from 10.00 to 16.67 per cent.
    3. Determination of population density of different species of field rats in Kharif and Rabi cropsRegular survey has been conducted in different research farms of university to observed the losses caused by the rodents especially field rat. In Kharif, rice crop damaged seviourly at Nawabganj, oilseeds and New Dairy Farm. Losses extending  upto 5.0-10.17 per cent in groundnut were recorded at Deegh and Araul Farm, while in wheat loss ranged from 2.75 to 8.38 per cent. The rodent species Tatera indica, Mus budga and Bandicota bengalensis were found at all the research farms which were damaging the crop.
    4. Extension achievements Department of Entomology has put a stall in All India farmers fairs Agro Industrial Exhibition organized during Oct.3, 2016 to Oct. 6, 2016 in the main campus. Latest insect pest management Technology had been demonstrated for farming community as well as extension workers.
    5. Dignitaries visited the DepartmentAccreditation team visited to the department on March 10, 2016 and gone through all activities performed by the Department of Entomology.  The team appreciated for maintaining the collection of insects of different species over hundred years.
