A field trial was laid out during 2004 and 2005 at intermediate zone in Jammu Province to study the efficiency of some biopesticides and insecticides in the management of Agrotis ipsilon Hufn. on Pioneer Maize (K-85) under recommended agronomic practices of SKUAST-Jammu. Seed treatment with chlorpyriphos, imidacloprid and insecticidal dust application of chlorpyriphos attributed to higher yield and less plant mortality as compared to other treatments. Use of biopesticides, viz., Heterorhabditls indicu, Metarhizium anisopliae, Beauveria bassiana, Steinernema carpocapsae, S. carpocapsae + B. bassiana, S. carpocapsae + M. anisopliae and H. indica + M. anisoliae provided less protection at earlier stages of seedling growth, whereas at later stages, they were effective and registered higher yield as compared to control. H. indica + M. anisopliae treated plots recorded higher yield as compared to other biopesticides
