Although egg parasitoids, which contribute to early reduction of populations, especially Trichogramma chilonis, have been investigated extensively as biocontrol agents, other species such as Telenomus sp. The present project intends to investigate the prospects of Telenomus sp. Both the Uk′37 and the FP-12E SST estimates, as well as the planktonic foraminiferal δ18O values, indicate an abrupt warming (ca. data), can possibly be explained in the backdrop of, varietal and crop protection practices adopted, subsequent to its first appearance in 1989 (Jayanthi, remained at low levels probably due to the, discontinuance of the cultivation of Co 8021 which, was found to harbor greater levels of infestation. 65, ca.

Regent application, did not affect cane thickness and juice quality, significantly but led to higher cane yields when, sprayed at 200 g a.i./ha (Sardana 2001c). The high degree of moraine preservation resulted from dramatic changes in the flow path of piedmont palaeoglaciers at the southern end of the Cordillera Blanca (10° 00′ S, 77° 16′ W), which, in turn. Nevertheless, it would be interesting to, observe if the present increase in root borer, populations represents only a sporadic outbreak, which will stabilize over time as it generally happens. prone to attack than Haryana (Anonymous 1993).

However, wilt and root borer-wilt complex together affected. 92. Moreover, incidence and population were generally high in, unirrigated fields and in sandy or sandy loam soils, comparatively more infested during the early stages, of crop growth. Natural enemy complex and, dynamics need to be determined since tropical, sugarcane belt is characterized by year-round, activity of borer (Srikanth et al. ratooned in March-May (Alagesan et al. Crop Production.

Despite its more or less pan India distribution, much of the earlier work was restricted to the north Indian sugarcane belt due to its persistent occurrence and more serious damage. Trichogrammatidae). borer attacks sugarcane in the early stages (Pruthi, 1937) when the crop is 2-4 months old and, Anonymous 1943). It hatches 4-6days.

These small yellow-orange worms feed on the roots and bud nodes of sugarcane plants. After its first report of occurrence in Tamil Nadu in 1990, it remained either dormant or unnoticed for a couple of decades and started re-emerging in the early part of 2015. A rational pest management module including minimum quantity of synthetic organic pesticide (rynaxypyr), a semi-synthetic pesticide (cartap hydrochloride), a plant fraction (neem oil), repellent crops (coriander and basil), physical barrier, refuge planting, detrashing, removal of water and late shoots, pheromone traps, Beauveria spore formulation etc. to be adopted in tropical India are outlined. In a subsequent report (Anonymous, 1993), variable infestation levels were recorded in, The surge in the root borer incidence, observed by, the present authors in the sugarcane tracts of T.

It is, therefore not a true root pest but in usage, it has been named as a root borer. The average loss in weight of millable, canes at the 100% level of incidence was estimated, to be 2.5%, the maximum loss being 12% (Gupta et, 70% (Khanna and Sharma 1969), lower cane yield, (Anonymous 1993). INFESTATION IN DIFFERENT GENOTYPES OF SUGARCANE UNDER FIELD CONDITIONS The experiments were carried out with total number of 92 genotypes screened during 1995–96 and 1996–97 where as the incidence of root borer ranged from 15.7 to 86.2 and 10.2 to 91.6 per cent, respectively. It apparently was introduced into Louisiana about 1855, and has since spread to the other Gulf Coast States. The longevity of male and female adults was 4-9, and 4-12 d, respectively with a ratio of 1:1.1. Light trap studies in, temperature of 34-37°C, minimum temperature of, 20-27°C and RH of 52-70% were conducive to. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. Regardless of the reasons conjectured for its, upsurge, the borer is more likely to follow the pattern, of year-round occurrence observed in Gujarat, (Pandya and Patel 2007a; Pandya et al. Proceedings of an International Conference. In light trap studies, in Pakistan, root borer populations peaked during, Light trap monitoring studies at Coimbatore showed, low moth catches in two different years which, indicated negligible pest occurrence in the area. Trichogrammatidae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea). It is the only species of borer infesting the, underground portion of canes and, hence, generally, the larva in any stage does not or cannot bore into, the pest was described as the most destructive of, the insects that attack the underground parts of. 1996b). In Gujarat, phorate 10 G at 1 kg, a.i./ha applied three times recorded minimum, At Karnal, fipronil (Regent) 0.3 G and 5 SC at 200, g a.i./ha reduced the incidence of the borer more, significantly than the standard Sevidol 8G or Furadan, 3G or chlorpyrifos 20 EC. root borer (polyocha 'depressella swin.)

Polyocha depressella Swinhoe (=Emmalocera depressella (Swinhoe)) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is the only species of borer infesting the underground portion of sugarcane and, hence, referred to by its common name root borer or rootstock borer. 1990).
