Abstract: Present study was carried out on Chickpea, Cicer arietinum Linn. cv. ‘JG-322’ to find out the efficacy of indigenous products like neem leaf and seed kernel extract, neem oil, cow and buffalo butter milk, garlic and red pepper extract and biological pesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis as compared to chemical pesticide against the incidence of gram pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera Hubner at College of Agriculture, Tikamgarh (Madhya Pradesh) during rabi seasons of 2001-02, 2002-03 and 2003-04. The results revealed that indigenous products, garlic + red pepper (0.5, 1.0%), cow butter milk (4-8%), buffalo butter milk (8%) and biological insecticide, Bacillus thuringiensis (0.2%) were highly effective and statistically at par with chemical pesticides Quinolphos (0.05%) and Cypermethrin (0.01%) not only in reducing the larval population and % pod damage caused by H. armigera but also in increasing the grain yield of chickpea.Net profit was found to be quite closer to chemical pesticides. The incremental cost benefit ratio was highest with Garlic+Red pepper extract -0.5% (19.4) and Cow butter milk- 4% (19.3). Thus, these indigenous products can be employed effectively, economically and safely in controlling the incidence of gram pod borer in Chickpea.
