Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted to study the varietal preference of okra shoot and fruit borer, Earias vittella (Fab.) under field condition in Konkan region during summer 2016 and 2017 at RARS, Karjat. There were eight varieties viz., ArkaAnamika, Akola 10, Akola Bahar, PhuleUtakarsh, GOA-5, ParbhaniKranti, Panjab, Padmini, and VarshaUpahar (as a check) were screened for their relative susceptibility to okra shoot and fruit borer under field conditions. Among the eight genotypes/varieties of okra, none of the cultivars was found to be free from pest infestation in the year 2016 and 2017. The minimum shoot damage was recorded on variety Akola bahar (12.98%), whereas the maximum damage was recorded on Punjab Padmini (26.81%). The per cent fruit damage revealed that the infestation fruit damage ranged from 21.29 to 36.38 per cent on different genotypes/varieties. The variety Akola 107 recorded less damage (21.29%) to fruits as compared to rest of the other varieties.
