Abstract
Investigations were conducted on the management of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.), and the cabbage semi-looper, Trichoplusia ni (Hübner), with (i) a botanical formulation, Ashima I, in combination with acompanion crop, tobacco (Nicotinum tabaci), or an attractant crop, the indian mustard (Brassica juncea) grown around the periphery, and (ii) the botanical formulations, Ashima I and Ashima II. Tobacco alone was effective in repelling the pest up to a radius of 3m, while the trap crop reduced the infestation significantly. the overall mean damage to cabbage leaves was 64% of the control in tobacco plots treated with two spraying of Ashima, while it was only 50% of the controls in plots surrounded by mustard and three sprays of the botanical formulation. Spraying with Ashima I and II four times during the 15-week cropping period had almost completely reducedthe infestation within a week of initial spraying and maintained it it at that low level, until harvest. the mean wt of cabbage heads was 0.39 kg in the control plots and about 30% more in the test plots.....
