Spray to protect mango trees from 'branch grind'

In the lower regions of Himachal Pradesh, common is a major crop and is the main source of income of the gardeners. Various types of toxic pests occasionally attack in the mango gardens and cause damage.
As long as fruits are planted on trees, our Baghban brothers and sisters are attentive to the garden, but after breaking the fruits, the Baghban gets engaged in any and necessary tasks and their focus is not concentrated on the gardens, The problem of Mango Silla insect thrives at this time. The invasion of this pest pest used to be low in the first place, but now its invasion appears every year. These insects damage the gardens from September to October. If there is information about gardeners and sisters, then this pest could be managed in time.


This pest is very small juice sucker insect, which is not visible from the outside. Its infants leave the eggs and enter the new buds and suck the juice. The affected part is converted into a cone. These cones are also called branch bales. Initially, these lumps are small, but as the insect increases, the size of these tumors becomes even larger. If these nodes are cut and seen then yellow colored infants (nymph) are seen in their eyes, whose eyes are red. You can see them in the garden with the help of field lenses. These insects release juice as well as a sticky substance, which is known as honey dew. These insects live within these nodes for the March-April month and later become adults and leave these nodes. This pest pest completes only one life cycle in the year. Due to the juice of these pests, the affected trees become weak. Branch branches are not able to make new branches, due to which the crop of the coming year is affected. Baghban brothers and sisters can see the symptoms of this pest on some trees in the month of September. At that time, these lumps or cones are small and are not easily seen, but they can be seen with attention or with the help of field lens.


Management: Initially, when the number of branch bales is less then get out and destroy them. After this, spraying of Dimethoate or Acetic Damitan Methal with 200 ml of 200 liters of water per plant. Sprinkle with a foot sprayer or a power sprayer, so that the drug can be affected. If necessary, spraying can be done twice in 21 days intervals. Keep in mind that the spraying of the same insect does not occur repeatedly, otherwise there may be resistance in the pest pest and the medication can not be affected again. Apart from this, we can contact the scientists working in research and agricultural science centers of our Horticultural University and can solve their problems.
