ABSTRACT Present investigation was carried out in Rain fed areas of Chhattisgarh on chickpea, Cicer arientum (Linnaeus) by using 5% Neem Seed Kernel Extract (NSKE) suspension with combination of Flubendiamide 39.39 SC compared with Profenophos + Cypermethrin 44 EC, Farmer’s practice i. e. Chlorpyriphos + Cypermethrine 55 EC & control plots against the incidence of gram pod borer Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) at Kurud, Nagari & Sihawa areas of Dhamtari district (Chhattisgarh) during Rabi season, 2012-13. The results indicates that Neem Seed Kernel Extract (5%) alonwith Flubendiamide 39.39 SC @ 50 ml/ha effectively reduce the H. Armigera larval population as compared with control plot when used in regular sprays in vegetative and pod formation stages. H. armigera has been observed to be a major pest in village and requires more attention to get rid of its infestation. The study also concluded that Spraying of Flubendiamide 39.35 SC (Fame) @ 50 ml/ha along with Neem seed kernel extract 5% recorded higher grain yield of chickpea (14.66 q/ha) over Farmer’s practice (12.26 q/ha) i.e. Chloropyriphos+Cypermethrin 55 EC @ 1000 ml/ha as a standard check suggesting low cost, eco-friendly, easily acceptable and adoptable technology for management of chickpea pod borer.
