Abstract:

Pigeonpea, Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp is one of the important legume food crop of the semi-arid tropical and sub-tropical farming systems under varied agro-ecological environments. It is the second most important pulse crop of India after chickpea. India is the largest producer and also the largest consumer of pulses in the world. Assessments of twenty six restorers of pigeonpea was screened for resistance against major insect pests of pigeonpea under field conditions, at the ARS, Badnapur, VNMKV, Parbhani during Kharif – 2017-18. Out of these three restorers viz. BDNHR-31-71, BDNHR-31-63, BDNHR-31-52 were found to be most promising restorers against H. armigera and M. obtusea by recording the range of H. armigera pod damage 7.53 – 36.01 per cent and 10.07 – 37.42 per cent due to M. obtusea as compared to check BDN 711 (36.02 and 38.45 per cent, respectively). As regards the morphological characters, it was observed that the growth habit and colour of flower and pod did not influence the pod borer infestation. Whereas, characters indicated that the maximum pod wall thickness, maximum number of seeds per pods, longest pods, maximum pod width characteristics were found to be least preferred as compared to minimum pod wall thickness, short pod lengths and short width pod which having more susceptible against pod borers.
