  3. Comperative study of botanical extracts and synthetic insecticides against cucurbit fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (coq.)

    Funded by: Funded by UGC Bangladesh through Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Dinajpur.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Efficacy of botanical and synthetic insecticides were evaluated against Bactrocera cucurbitae on bitter gourd in the research field. The plant extracts and insecticides showed variable efficacies in reducing the fruit infestation and larval density over control treatment.

  4. Anti ovipositional and repellent effect of plant extracts against cucurbit fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (coq.)

    Funded by: Funded by UGC Bangladesh through Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Dinajpur.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Anti ovipositional and repellent effects of six plant extracts with three different solvents (methanol, acetone and water) were evaluated against Bactrocera cucurbitae in the laboratory conditions. On the basis of adult settled, progeny develoment, percent repellency and oviposition deterrence, the order of toxicity of the plant extracts was found as tobacco > neem > water pepper > castor > bullock’s heart > eucalyptus.

  5. Suppression of pulse beetle (Callosobruchus chinensis L.) infesting stored chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) seed with some botanical extracts

    Funded by: Special allocation, Ministry of science and Technology, Bangladesh.

    Position: Co-Investigator

    Description: The efficacy of 6 indigenous plant extracts with two different solvents viz. acetone and petroleum ether was assessed for their grain protectant efficacy against the attack of C. chinensis. The efficacy was evaluated considering oviposition, adult emergence, seed infestation and seed weight loss caused by C. chinensis. Cchickpea seeds treated with tested botanicals especially neem extract with acetone performed best to suppress C. chinensis in stores.

  6. Effect of biophysical fruit traits of bitter gourds on the infestation of Bactrocera cucurbitae (coq.)

    Funded by: Funded by UGC Bangladesh through Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Dinajpur.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: The fruit traits associated with resistance to cucurbit fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett), of different bitter gourd varieties viz. tia, heeradill, bulbuli, masrnagha, goghkorolla, poran, green queen and sonamukhi were used. Biophysical fruit-traits like fruit length, fruit diameter, number of longitudinal ribs and small ridges were lowest in resistant and the highest in susceptible varieties which showed a significant positive correlation with the percent fruit infestation. Additionally, the height of longitudinal ribs, depth of small ridges, pericarp thickness and fruit toughness were highest in resistant and the lowest in susceptible varieties. These parameters showed negative correlation with the percent fruit infestation.

  7. Varietal preference and biological traits of litchi fruit borer (Conopomorpha sinensis Bradley)

    Funded by: Special allocation, Ministry of science and Technology, Bangladesh.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Experiment was carried out on the varietal preference in respect to seasonal infestation and biological traits of litchi fruit borer, Conopomorpha. sinensis, on Bombai, Madrazi, Bedena and China-3 litchi varieties. The highest infestation was found in Bombai (80 %) and lowest in China-3 (50%). Life history traits of C. sinensis were detected on Madraji and Bombai.

  8. Screening of different varieties of bitter gourd against cucurbit fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (coq.) (Diptera: Tephritidae)

    Funded by: Funded by UGC Bangladesh through Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Dinajpur.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Varietal susceptibility of different bitter gourd varieties viz. tia, heeradill, bulbuli, masrnagha, goghkorolla, poran, green queen and sonamukhi to cucurbit fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae(Coq.) based on percent fruit infestation and larval density was conducted. The percent fruit-infestation and larval density were significantly varied among the bitter gourd varieties. Among the tested bitter gourd varieties, the order of infestation intensity was found as green queen > bulbuli > poran > tia > goghkorolla > heeradil > masrangha > sonamukhi.

  9. Toxicity effect of some indigenous plant extracts against rice brown plant hopper, Nilaparvata lugens stal. (Hemiptera: Delphacidae)

    Funded by: Funded by UGC Bangladesh through Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Dinajpur.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: The bioefficacy of six indigenous plant extracts viz. leaves of Caloropis gigantea, Polygonum hydropiper, Tagetes erecta, Ricinus communis, Capsicum frutescens and Vitex negundo were investigated against a destructive pest of rice, Brown Plant Hopper (BPH), Nilaparvata lugens (Stal.) under the laboratory conditions. The methanol solvent extracts at 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 % concentration were evaluated against nymph and adult. Among the tested plant extracts, C. frutescens plant extract showed the highest toxic effect whereas R. communis plant extract showed the The bioefficacy of six indigenous plant extracts viz. leaves of Caloropis gigantea, Polygonum hydropiper, Tagetes erecta, Ricinus communis, Capsicum frutescens and Vitex negundo were investigated against a destructive pest of rice, Brown Plant Hopper (BPH), Nilaparvata lugens (Stal.) under the laboratory conditions. The methanol solvent extracts at 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 % concentration were evaluated against nymph and adult. Among the tested plant extracts, C. frutescens plant extract showed the highest toxic effect whereas R. communis plant extract showed the lowest toxic effect against both the larval and adult stage of BPH.

  10. Role of cultural practices on the infestation of rice brown plant hopper, Nilaparvata lugens Stal. (Hemiptera: Delphacidae)

    Funded by: Funded by UGC Bangladesh through Institute of Research and Training (IRT), HSTU, Dinajpur.

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: A detail study was made on cultural practices for integrated management of brown planthopper (BPH), Nilaparvata lugens (Stal.) (Homoptera: Delphacidae), a major pest of rice in Bangladesh. The experiment with cultural practices was conducted in Amon season at farmer’s field at two location of sadar, Dinajpur. The treatments were different level of Urea fertilizer application and different spacing. Population of N. lugens was found to vary in accordance to the applied dose of urea fertilizer and spacing.

    Description: Five plants of seed of Annona reticulata, leaf of Nerium olender, seed of Ricinus communis, leaf of Tagetes erecta and leaf of Vitex negundo extracts at 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 % concentration were evaluated for their repellent, direct toxic and residual effects against rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae. The results revealed that all five plants extracts were effective in checking insect infestation and had different toxic, residual and repellent effects on S. oryzae. Among the test plant extracts, Annona seed extract showed the highest toxic effect Ricinus communis,seed extract showed the lowest toxic effect.
