The present study was conducted to evaluate the sequential application of different insecticidal treatments against pod borer [Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner)], tur pod fly [Melanagromyza obtusa (Malloch)] infesting pigeonpea variety BSMR 736 during Kharif 2015-16 and 2017-18. Among all the treatment with application of first spray chlorantraniliprole 18.5 SC @ 0.3 ml /l of water at 50 % flowering stage and second spray of flubendiamide 39.35 SC @ 0.2 ml /l of water at pod development stage provided better control of Helicoverpa armigera and Melanagromyza obtusa on pigeonpea in terms of lower pod and grain damage and getting higher grain yield. Hence, these two sequential applications of insecticides can be suggested to the farmers for effective management of pod borers on pigeonpea.
