The investigation of “Efficacy of selected bio-pesticides against pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.) pod borer complex under field conditions" was conducted at International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) Hyderabad, during 2016-17 and 2017-18. These studies revealed Spinosad 45 SC treatment as the most effective against H. armigera. Lower larval population of H. armigera was observed when crop was treated with consortium of biopesticides which were at par with neem fruit powder followed by HaNPV. Lowest population of M. vitrata was recorded in Spinosad 45 SC treated plots followed by consortium and neem fruit powder which was statistically at par with each other. In case of farmers field the treatments with Spinosad and consortium were found most effective and were statistically on par with each other in H. armigera and M. vitrata respectively. The treatment of Spinosad 45 SC was found significantly superior, recording lower pod damage by H. armigera (6.82 %) followed by consortium (37.95%) and neem fruit powder (39.77%). Spinosad 45 SC was found significantly superior, recording lower pod fly M. obtusa and C. chinensis pod damage (1.16; 0.33% respectively)
