About

Species Interaction is a captivating field of study that delves into the intricate relationships and interactions between different species within ecosystems. This interdisciplinary discipline combines insights from ecology, biology, and environmental science to understand how species coexist, compete, cooperate, and influence each other's survival and behavior.

Species interaction researchers investigate topics such as predation, mutualism, competition, and symbiosis. By unraveling the complex web of interactions, they contribute to our understanding of ecosystem dynamics, biodiversity, and the impacts of human activities on ecological balance. Species Interaction plays a crucial role in conservation efforts, understanding ecosystem resilience, and predicting the consequences of environmental changes.

Efficacy of Different Concentrations of Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) on Maize Stem Borer Infestation
by Muhammad Salman Hameed, Khurshied Ahmed Khan, Nida Urooj and Ijaz Rasool Noorka

Maize stem borer (Chilo Partellus), poses a substantial threat to maize crops all over the world, causing damage that ranges from 26.7% to 80.4%. Its destructive impact includes killing the shoot in young plants, leading to a “dead heart,” and damaging the upper stem in older plants through boring activity. To combat this issue, a field experiment evaluated various insect growth regulators (IGRs) such as Lufenuron®, Pyriproxyfen®, Sitara®, Viper®, Track®, and Priority®. These IGRs, known as reduced-risk pesti...cides, target pest juveniles and are less harmful to beneficial insects. Conducted through a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with 24 treatments, excluding a control group, the study recorded maize stem borer populations at 3, 7, and 14 days post-IGR application. In conclusion, the study identifies pyriproxyfen® and Priority® at double the standard concentrations as highly effective insect growth regulators in mitigating maize stem borer infestations, offering promising avenues for enhanced pest control strategies in maize cultivation.
