Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted as a part of on farm trial in farmer’s field of Tinsukia district under Krishi Vigyan Kendra during 2015-2016 to manage major insect pests of okra through Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Ten different IPM treatments (including control) were followed against the target pests. The experiment was conducted under randomized block design with three replications. Results showed that amongst the treatments, application of malathion 50 EC @ 0.05%+ YST was found to be the best in reduction of both white fly and jassids population to 2.08 and 3.98 per cent after three weeks of appearance of  the initial pest population as compared to the control . The treatment also recorded the highest yield of okra (92 q/ha).
