Abstract:

The population of Aproaerema modicella initiated from 11th standard week when the population was maximum 5.82/plant. The minimum leaf miner population of 0.40/plant was recorded at 15th standard week when minimum temperature, relative humidity and sunshine hours were recorded highest. The lowest population of Aphis craccivora was recorded as 1.92 / plants in the 14th standard week while population of BHC was recorded as 0.35 larvae/plants and 13th standard week. The population of Aphis craccivora and Spilosoma obliqua was found maximum (20.10/ plants) and (7.23 larvae/plant) during 17th standard week when maximum temperature, minimum temperature, temperature gradient, relative humidity, and sunshine hour was (42.320C, 23.890C, 19.910C, 64.42%, 8.51 hr) respectively. The larval and aphid population was found to decrease steadily after the 17th standard week due to increase in the age of the crop and rainfall.
