Abstract:

Studies were carried out at Experimental Farm, Faculty of Agriculture, Wadura, Sopore, SKUAST-K, during the year, 2016-2017. The larval infestation of H. armigera started a month and half (22SW) after transplanting of the crop in all the tomato genotypes. A negative and non-significant correlation was computed between H. armigera larval population and maximum temperature (r = -0.032), whereas sunshine hours had negative and significant association (r = -0.566) with fruit borer larvae. The other abiotic factors such as minimum temperature, rainfall, maximum and minimum humidity had significant and positive correlation with r values of 0.874, 0.734, 0.543 and 0.593, respectively.
