I had planted few arecanut saplings 2 months back, they are now dying one by one like this please help
i hope you have found an expert who will guide you on this by now. first question, have you given adequate water to the saplings? have you planted a shading tree? Arecanut is a water loving tree which needs to be taken care in the first few years
These are clear symptoms of leaf eating caterpillar and shoot borer.
You need to treat it immediately by following methods -
Drench with trichoderma viride with P solubilizing bacteria. This will strengthen the roots and prevent fungal attack at root zone.
Apply carbofuran to fight with shoot borer.
