Utilizing Silver Nanoparticles for Effective Pest Management: Efficacy against Fall Armyworm Spodoptera Frugiperda

Jitendra Kumar [25]

Abstract: Spodopterafrugiperda which is also popularly known as Fall armyworm (FAW) is a Lepidoptera which belongs to the Noctuidae family. It is stamped as a major pest for crops like corn, rice, maize, etc. which are generally controlled by insecticides. But those can cause harm to environment. With the development of science and technology, nanotechnology is taking prime role in the agricultural industry as proper alternative of traditional pest management. The current study sought to determine the efficacy of silver nano particles (Ag-NPs) towards S. frugiperda under certain condition. Different concentrations of silver nanoparticle-based solutions were used to control the Fall armyworm. The different concentration shows that the mortality rate increases with increase in concentrations. The silver nanoparticles-based solution can be used as insecticides.
