Novaluron, carbosulfan, imidachloprid, bifentrhin, methyl-o-demeton, chlorpyriphos dust, neem oil, propargite and thiamethoxam were evaluated against the field populations of pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera) infesting marigold (Tagetes erecta) during 2014 and 2015 at the Research Farm, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Jammu, India. The results indicated that carbosulfan showed higher efficacy against H. armigera in reducing pest population. Mean population of H. armigera after two sprays revealed that carbosulfan 0.003% was effective and superior. The next best were novaluron 0.100% and Bifenthrin 0.050% which were at par. Propargite 0.800% and neem oil 0.050% were found to be least effective against H. armigera.

Keywords: Tagetes erecta, Helicoverpa armigera, Management, Efficacy, Carbosulfan.
