Management of seed borer in Sapota

  • Sanitation: Sanitation is to be maintained for eliminating the sources of seed borer infestation.  Collection and destruction of the off season stray mature sapota fruits after main harvest till November will bring down the  pest incidence.
  • Use of light traps: Erecting light traps in the field during cropping season will attract adult moths and will minimize the incidence.
  • Spray intervention: Effective management of seed borer relies primarily on the stage of spray intervention.  The time of application is crucial in the management of seed borer.  First spray intervention should be made when the fruits are of small lime size and thereafter the sprayings should be repeated at fortnightly interval during main cropping season.  Alternating the sprays of Deltamethrin @ 1 ml/lt and Bt @ 1 ml/lt at fortnightly interval   will bring down the seed borer infestation.
