BIOEFFICACY OF NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES AGAINST THRIPS PEST (Thrips palmi) ON GRAPE VINE (Vitis vinifera L.) | ¬†UTTAR PRADESH JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY

The grape thrips (Thrips palmi) is a major pest that causes significant losses in commercial grape production (Vitis vinifera L.). In West Bengal, India, it has become a significant pest of grape vine. The efficacy of neonicotinoid insecticides spinetoram 10% w/w + sulfoxaflor 30% w/w WG @ 100, 120, and 140 a.i. g /ha, spinetoram 12 percent SC w/v (11.7 percent w/w), sulfoxaflor 24 percent w/v (21.8 percent w/w) SC, emamectin benzoate 5% SG and bu Spinetoram 10% w/w + sulfoxaflor 30% w/w WG @ 140 g a.i./ha was the most effective against thrips on grapes, and it was on par with spinetoram 10% + sulfoxaflor 30% WG @ 120 g a.i./ha. The same tendencies can be seen in yield. The pesticides tested were also found to be less toxic to predators such as Menochilus sp., Syrphus sp., and Chrysoperla sp.
