The experiment was carried out under laboratory condition in the Department of Agricultural entomology, UAHS, Shivamogga. The effective Concentration of all the products viz.,1 per cent sweet flag rhizome powder, 2 per cent neem leaf powder, 1.5 per cent ginger rhizome powder, 1 per cent cashew nut shell powder and 1.5 per cent zandu parad powder was formulated separately with wood ash and gel form and evaluated with 5 per cent malathion dust as standard check along with untreated control against Sitophilus oryzae L. adult mortality, F1 progeny, split field bean dhal damage and split field bean weight loss. Among the two formulations of different plant products tested wood ash and gel based Sweet flag rhizome powder at 1 per cent  was found to be superior at 96hr after  treatment followed by cashew nut shell powder at 1 per cent. The nest best treatments were ginger rhizome powder and zandu parad powder at 1.5 per cent. Whereas, neem leaf powder at 2 per cent was found to be least effective. However, all the plant products found effective when compared to untreated control.

Key words: Sitophilus oryzae, Split dhal, gel entrapment, wood ash
