BKN20 5%AS 1000 ml$ 29.11 72.19b
Thiamethoxam 25%WG 120 g 31.18 63.12a
  1. *Values represent the mean of three replications ± SE, for pre-spray shoot damage incidence (before treatments) and shoot damage reduction (obtained from four rounds of leaf plucking after treatments at weekly interval)
  2. $Containing 2 × 107 conidia/ml. Values in the same column with different superscript are significantly different with each other at p < 0.05 by Tukey’s post-hoc Honestly Significant Difference (HSD) test
