Cashew Nut Free from Tea Mosquito

'Yadnyanagar' Homa Farm
Ravindra Wadekar.
Talwade, Rajapur,
Dist; Ratnagiri,
Maharashtra, India

Report from P.S. Kadam B.Sc. (Agri) Officer, Agricultural Dept,
Pachal, Rajapur,
Dist: Ratnagiri

I recently visited the Yadnyanagar Homa Farm of Shri Ravindra Wadekar in Talwade village. During the visit I inspected the Cashew Nut crop (which at the moment is in the flowering stage. Following are my observations:

  • Cashew Nut crop in Yadnyanagar is totally free of the tea mosquito insect
  • Normally this insect is found in every field of Cashew Nut
  • To control this insect, normally the farmer has to spray two or three times with strong chemicals such as Cyphermethrin and Monocrotophos
  • Even after spraying with these chemicals total control is never achieved
