Abstract:

Field experiment on the performance of different management strategies against fruit fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett) infesting bitter gourd was carried out during kharif 2017 and 2018 at farmers’ field. The results revealed that significantly lowest mean number of ovipositional punctures (1.72 and 1.98/fruit), lowest mean number of maggots (10.00 and 10.93/fruit), lowest mean percent of fruit infestation (13.92 and 16.90 %) and higher fruit yield (15.73 and 16.59 t/ha.) as well as the highest cost-benefit ratio (1: 2.31 and 1: 2.44) as compared to the other treatments was recorded in the treatment with the pheromone traps @ 25/ha + gur based poison bait trap (50ml Malathion 50 EC + 200g gur + 2 litre water) during both the year.
