Abstract

The effectiveness of Acorus calamus L. rhizome powder (0.1 and 0.2% w/w) was investigated as a grain protectant against Sitophilus oryzae (L.) and Tribolium castaneum (Herbst.) in stored milled rice. S. oryzae adults suffered negligible mortality at both the levels in initial testing, and showed no progeny development even at 0.1% level. After 3 or 6 months of storage, high mortality was observed at both the levels of A. calamus and only a few progeny adults could emerge from 0.1% level. T. castaneum adults suffered negligible mortality at all storage intervals. However more than 50% reduction was achieved at 0.1% level. The cooking quality of milled rice did not change even when treated with 0.2% A. calamus rhizomes and stored for more than eight months.
