Abstract:

Diversity of insect pests influenced by pesticides usages, Simpson index (D) of biodiversity index of insects were calculated. Significant difference was observed among the different pesticide usage patterns, and respective unsprayed plots. In cabbage, D=0.62, D= 0.26 in pesticide and unsprayed plots respectively and brinjal, D=0.64, D= 0.31 (pooled) were recorded in pesticide and unsprayed plots respectively where is no significant difference of insect diversity was noticed in low pesticide usage crops maize D=0.83, D= 0.80 in pesticide and unsprayed plots respectively and sorghum D=0.88, D= 0.86 in pesticide and unsprayed plots respectively.


Keywords: Diversity, Simpson index (D), Pesticide usage patterns
