Abstract : Experiments were conducted to study the bioefficacies of different leaf powders of Withania somnifera, Pongamia pinnata, Calotropis gigantea, and Phyllanthus amarus, against the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) that infests stored green gram seeds. Dried leaf powders of Withania Somnifera and Pongamia Pinnata (5mg/seed) were found to be simpler, inflicting 100 percent mortality, than leaf powders of Calotropis gigantea and Phyllanthus amarus (20mg/g seed), revealed 73.1% and 69.2%mortality severally. However, all plant leaf powders showed 100percent ovicidal activity.NoF1 adult emerged at 20mg/g seed treated with all plant powders. It absolutely was terminated that leaf powders of W. somnifera and Pongamia pinnata showed vital mortality, oviposition deterrence, and F1 adult deterrence of T.castaneum at very low concentrations. Hence, these ethnobotanicals powders could also be prompt as admixtures within the integrated management of beetle infestation of Green gram seeds throughout storage.
