EFFECTIVENESS OF DIFFERENT MANAGEMENT APPROACHES FOR THE CONTROL OF FLOWER THRIPS IN MUNGBEAN (Short communication)
Effectiveness of different management practices were tested against flower thrips of mungbean at BINA Headquarter farm, Mymensingh during Kharif-1 in 2021. The experiment was conducted in RCBD design with five treatments (White sticky trap, Cyp-up 10 EC, Biotrin, Bioclean and untreated control). Spraying of Cyp-up 10 EC (Cyproheptadine and tricholine citrate) @ 1ml/L of water and a biopestidcide Biotrin (Martin) @ of 1.4 ml/L of water gave the best results in reducing flower infestation and thrips population. The higher yield was also obtained from Cyp-up 10 EC (Cyproheptadine and tricholine citrate) and Biotrin (Martin) treated plots that was statistically similar. Using sticky white trap and spraying the bio-pesticide (Bioclean) were less effective in reducing flower thrips infestation in mungbean. Therefore, considering the efficacy and yield spraying of Cyp-up 10 EC (Cyproheptadine and tricholine citrate) at the concentration of 1ml/L of water and for eco-friendly management Biotrin (Martin) 1.4 ml/L of water are effective for the management of flower thrips in mungbean production in Bangladesh.
