Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Screening of tomato cultivars against fruit borer, Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) infesting tomato in Mid-hills of Meghalaya” was carried out at the Entomology Research Farm, ICAR Research Complex for NEH Region, Umiam, Meghalaya during 2015 and 2016. Eleven tomato cultivars were screened against fruit borer, H.armigera infesting tomato. The maximum (39.25% and 37.00%) mean percent fruit infestation was recorded on cultivar Badshah during both the years i.e. 2015 and 2016, while minimum (19.50% and 19.00%) mean percent fruit infestation was recorded on cultivar Selection-2 and MT-2 during the year 2015 and 2016 respectively. None of the cultivars was found to be free from the infestation of fruit borer. It was further revealed that Selection-2 and MT-2 were found to be better cultivar against H. armigera infesting tomato.
