Kangade Y. P, Zambare S. P

Abstract :

Extracts from leaves of Argemone mexicana were tested against 4th instar caterpillars (Larvae) of Corcyra cephalonica.100% larval mortality was observed after treatment with Methanol extract at 2 ml/kg rice while 90 % larvicidal and 10% pupicidal effect was observed after treatment with Chloroform extract at the same dose. The methanol extract can be used to control the infestation of Corcyra cephalonica in rice.
