Abstract:

Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) locally known as ‘Bhendi’ also known as lady’s finger is a popular and most common annual vegetable crop in tropical and subtropical parts of the world. Several insect pests attack okra. Use of synthetic insecticides indiscriminately on okra causes environmental pollution and health hazards to human beings due to pesticide residues. Present day concern for pesticide residue free food has induced intense interest for organic farming. In organic farming use of chemical pesticides are not allowed to control pests, so alternate to it is use of biological control agents. Instead of producing and releasing bio control agents conservation biological control through ecological engineering is emerging as answer to the limited pest control options available in organic farming. In organic farming different bio fertilizers and bio pesticides usage is common practice to supply nutrients and manage pests. In the present study different bio fertilizer and bio pesticide treatments were tested with respect to Pest: Defender populations and it revealed that there was no significant difference between the treatments for pest defender dynamics. Ecological engineering can be promoted as low cost, sustainable strategy in all organic farming situations to manage insect pests.
