Project on Jatropha










Resource management:

  • Looking to the agro-climatic situation of the zone, to find out economic and feasible entomological practices for the recommended varieties by which maximum economic gain could be made possible.
  • To increase the farm income intercrop paddy, pigeon pea, Mungbean,  and cotton should be planted in between Jatropha.
  • To develop insect resistance cotton variety against the cotton pest.
  • To check the G. herbaceum cotton against the yield and economy.
  • To Check the G.herbaceun cotton against wilt disease

Crop protection:

  • To determine most economic and eco-friendly plant protection techniques.
  • To Check the G.herbaceun strain tested at Pune.

Research Recommendations made for the Farmers. : (Approved in joint AGRESCO)



  • The effective control of bollworm can be achieved on Hy-6 cotton after the release of egg larval parasites viz. Chilonus blackburni @10 to 12 thousand per ha. in 4 to 5 installment per cotton season supplementing with the use of insecticide the egg larval should be recommended at ETL.
  • Based on result of research carried out for three years and considering the economics of different treatment the following recommendation have proposed in the IPM programme to control cotton bollworm with a reduction in the use of chemical insecticides and high economical yield.

1.Blanket application of Methyl-O-Demeton 25EC@0.03% during initial crop growth stage i.e. up to 40 DAG.

2. Two release of chrysopa @10,000 per hectare.

3. Three release of Trichogramma chilonis @2.5 lakh per hectare between 45 to 110 days.

4. Application of HNPV @450 L.U. per hectare for Heliothis & SNPV @250 L.U. per hectare for Spodoptera.

5. Application of Neem based pesticide @2 to 3 litre per hectare.

6. Endosulfan 35EC @2 Litre per hectare or Chloropyriphos 20 EC @2.5 Litre per hectare or Quinalphos 20 EC     @ 500 ml.per hectare alternatively.

7. Collection & destruction of flared squares, locules green bolls egg masses &grown up larvae (ICBR 1:3.84).
