The investigation revealed that treatment with diatomaceous earth recorded less seed damage and weight loss (18.01 and 3.66%) followed by sweet flag powder (29.16 and 11.12%) as against control (79.33 and 21.10%). The seed viability and germination percentage was more in diatomaceous earth (82.11 and 82.09%) followed by sweet flag powder (71.22 and 71.24%) treated seeds as against control (23.16 and 23.66%).



Botanicals, Callosobruchus maculatus, Inert minerals, Spinosad, Vigna mungo.
