Abstract

Plutella xylostella (L) (Lepidoptera, Plutellidae) also known as DBM is the major insect pest which poses a threat to the crucifer crops every year. Damage caused to the crops is estimated around 30-90%. Farmers foresee chemical pesticides as their only source of hope. They spray chemical pesticides such as chlorpyrifos, fenvalerate, endosulphan, dimethoate, Malathion, Permethrin, cypermethrin, Carbaryl and many more to protect their crops from the threat of pest. These chemical pesticides are hazardous to health of living beings and also a threat to the biodiversity. As a result, it hinders the path to a sustainable eco-safe world. Botanical pesticides play a vital role in eco-safe pest management strategy. Most importantly, this research paper intends to investigate synergistic effect of Azadirachta indica and Calotropis procera leaves extracts on the antifeedant behavior of Plutella xylostella. Combination of the aforesaid plant extracts are found to be more effective as an antifeedant when compared with the efficacy of the individual plant extracts against 2nd instar larvae of Plutella xylostella. Secondly, the research work aims to provide farmers with a better option to obtain a pesticide-residue free cauliflower yield.
