|Abstract: ||The brinjal shoot and fruit borer, Leucinodes orbonalis, is the major pest of brinjal. Field trials were conducted for three
consecutive years (2005-07) to assess the efficacy of an isolate of the entomopathogenic nematode Steinernema carpocapsae against
this pest under field conditions. Three rates of the entomopathogenic nematode (1, 1.5 and 2 billion/ha) were evaluated by spraying
infective juvenile stages 10-12 times, at ten-day intervals, during the brinjal growth cycle, starting at the 5-10% flowering stage.
Steinernema carpocapsae caused significant reduction in fruit borer damage and increased yield in the first two years.|
