Accession AA.2 was found to be superior with an yield of
75.0 kg per tree (237
· 100g of Azospirillum,
100g N, 40g P, 140g K and 10kg FYM per vine per year registered
higher yield of 1.95 kg dried berries per vine in the cultivar
· An espacement of
3 x 3m recorded a maximum yield of 3.9kg of green pepper
per vine in Panniyur-1.
· Application of
monocrotophos 1.5 ml/l was found to be effective in controlling
the mealy bug Ferrisia
virgata in pepper.
· Pre and post
monsoon soil and foliar application of Pseudomonas
fluorescens (50g) and post monsoon application of neem cake (2 kg) + metalaxyl 0.1 %
were found to reduce the incidence of foot rot in black pepper.
· Soil application
of Phorate 60g/tree or trunk implantation of Monocrotophos
1ml/tree was found to be effective for the management of stem
malabaricus on clove.
· Spray application
of Monocrotophos 1.5 ml/ha. or dimethoate 1ml/l as found to be
effective for the management of the black scale Saissettia
nigra on clove.
· Dipping hardwood
cuttings of Allspice in 1000ppm of IBA/IAA before planting in
polybags gave maximum rooting.

and soil application of Metalaxyl MZ
( 0.1%) + Pseudomonas
45 and 90 days after planting was found to reduce the rhizome
rot incidence upto 4.2 per cent.

g of ZnSo4, 500g of Neem cake per plant was found to correct
zinc deficiency in Red banana.

dimethoate @ 1 ml +
5ml water mixture administered @ 4 ml/plant was found to be
effective for the management of pseudostem borer on banana.
The cost benefit ratio was 1:2.85 and 1:2.79 in the case
of Monocrotophos and Dimethoate respectively.

month onwards with one month interval registered 18.8 per cent
incidence of leaf spot as against 65.2 per cent in control.
· Application of 25t of FYM, 800:40:650kg of NPK/ha
registered higher yield and TSS.

of 52 t/ha. with a maximum fruit length of 20.5 cm and fruit
girth of 42.5 cm.
