Testing of Insecticides on Rice Beetles (Sitophilus Oryzae L.)
AbstractThis study aims to test several types of plant-based insecticides that are optimal for rice beetles (Sitophilus Oryzae L). The research was carried out in the Agrotechnology laboratory, Faculty of Agriculture, Musamus Merauke University, from July to December 2019. The research design used in this study was a completely randomized design (CRD). Of the four powders used, namely orange leaves, soursop leaves, lemongrass, and noni leaves in the preliminary test, the most optimal is soursop leaves. Based on ANOVA analysis of mortality of rice beetles, it is known that F count 5.676 (5.676)> F table 3.885 (3.682) because the calculated F value is greater than F table at 5% level, so there is an effect of giving soursop powder insecticide on the mortality of S. Oryza at concentrations best is 30g of soursop powder with mortality reaching 70%. At least there was a loss of rice in the treatment of 30 g of soursop leaf powder in the amount of 0, 2%. Keywords: S. Oryza, Soursop leaves, Mortality, Sitophilus Oryzae L.
