- A field study was conducted to find out the effective insecticides in combination with water and kerosene for the management of cashew stem and root borer, Plocaederus ferruginous L. during year 2007-08 at the Regional Fruit Research Station Vengurle, Dist. Sindhudurg. (M.S.). Fifteen trees were treated with each treatment. The data indicated that the minimum percent of larval mortality in fifteen different treatments including control ranged from 20.00 to 100.00. The result indicated that the treatment T1 (10 ml Chloropyriphos + 50 ml kerosene) and T5 (10 ml of DDVP + 50 ml kerosene) was effective treatment and economical in control of cashew stem and root borer followed by T2 (5 ml Chloropyriphos + 40 ml kerosene) and T6 (10 ml DDVP + 40 ml kerosene) (90%).
