Abstract: The study was carried out at pulse section of Agriculture Research Institute (ARI) Tandojam. Chickpea crop is significantly important and rich in protein considered as major pulse crop in Pakistan and its surrounding and is attacked by number of insect pests, especially pod borer. The results declared that the control plot showed maximum population of Helicoverpa armigera throughout the study period. Whereas, after spraying novel pesticide (Radiant) at 100 ml/acre, results were maximum found as (0.75, 0.70, 0.80/plant) after 24 hours, (0.86, 0.80, 0.91/plant) after 48 hours, (0.91, 0.97, 0.94/plant) after 72 hours, (1.03, 1.08, 1.14/plant) after one week and (1.41, 1.68, 1.98/plant) after two weeks. Whereas, after the spraying of (Belt) at 50 ml/acre results (0.75, 0.80, 0.75/plant) after 24 hours, (0.80, 0.75, 0.91/plant) after 48 hours, (0.86, 0.91, 0.96/plant) after 72 hours, (1.01, 1.10, 1.05/plant) after one week and (1.41, 1.71, 1.98/plant) after two weeks were depicted. The result further revealed that (0.75, 0.70, 0.75/plant) after 24 hours, (0.86, 0.80, 0.86/plant) after 48 hours, (0.96, 1.01, 0.89/plant) after 72 hours, (0.98, 1.17, 1.10/plant) after one week and (1.42, 1.68, 1.98/plant) after two weeks after the application of (Steward) at 90 ml/acre. In conclusion our study resulted that Radiant pesticide showed maximum effects on the population reduction of H. armigera in Chickpea crop followed by Belt and Steward, respectively.
