Compatibility of Fusarium pallidoroseum with Insecticides


  • Central Institute for Cotton Research, Sirsa, Haryana, 125 055, India


Fusarium pallidoroseum was tested for compatibility with commonly used insecticides to include as one of the components of IPM for developing management strategy for cotton mealybug, Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley. In vitro compatibility studies of F. pallidoroseum with insecticides showed minimum inhibition of 17.9% with imidacloprid 17.8 SL (Confidor), followed by 32.4% with fipronil (Regent) and 36.0% with imidacloprid 24% flowable (Admire), while profenofos (Celcron) showed maximum inhibition (86.3%). The study indicated that imidacloprid (both formulations - SL and FS) and fipronil can be used for the management of the mealybug as these were relatively safer to F. pallidoroseum.
