Abstract: Present study was carried out on Chickpea, <b><i>Cicer</i></b><b><i> arietinum </i>Linn. </b>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,<i> Bacillus thuringiensis</i> as compared to chemical pesticide against the incidence of gram pod borer, <i>Helicoverpa</i><i> armigera</i> Hubner at College of Agriculture, Tikamgarh (Madhya Pradesh) during <i>rabi</i> seasons of 2001-02, 2002-03 and 2003-04. The results revealed that indigenous products, garlic + red pepper (0.5<i style="">, </i>1.0%), cow butter milk (4-8%), buffalo butter milk (8%) and biological insecticide, <i>Bacillus thuringiensis</i> (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 <i>H. armigera </i>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.
