Abstract

Two medicinal plants Centella asiatica and Boerhavia diffusa were found to be effective in controlling the larval instars and adults of Callosobruchus chinensis. Formulations of granules of the two plants were prepared and they caused significant mortality in adults and larvae of the insect. Thus the plants are proved to be effective in controlling the pest.
