Abstract:

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of incubated cow urine and its application rates against melon aphids (Aphis gossypii) and Pickleworms (Diaphania hyalinata) was investigated. Incubation periods of 7, 14 and 21 days at doses 5, 10 and 15% were tried in a randomized block design with three replications. Results from analysis of variance (Anova) show that all treatments significantly reduced the incidence of both pests. However, a post hoc analysis using Turkeys HSD reveals that 14 days incubation at the various dosage levels proved superior to other treatments. Maximum fruit yields of 79816, 78178 and 54109 kg/ha were also recorded for 14 days incubation at 10, 15 and 5%, respectively. Therefore, 14 days incubation time is recommended for cow urine FOR adoption in pest control on watermelon.
