Insecticidal efficacy of botanicals(Rotenone)against Fall Army Worm(Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)-(Research Proposal)
Corn production depends heavily on inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides which does not only degrade the agro-ecosystem but also economically inefficient .This study will be conducted to look for a new alternative means of controlling fall armyworm which are the candidate for sudden loss of yield by our corn farmers.This study could be beneficial for farmers as well as businessmen who are concerned of the environmental deterioration. The study should be divided into two phase. One for the laboratory and field experiment. To do screening in proper levels or concentrations for effective killing formulations against the insect pest.
