Abstract:

A field trial was conducted at little millet research plot of Birsa Agricultural University, Kanke, Ranchi during Kharif season of 2017, in order to find the effect of abiotic factor ofimportant abiotic factors on the incidence of shoot fly in little millet var BG1.Maximum infestation of Atherigona pulla was observed in the 3rd week after germination (i.e.,3rd week of July)when the maximum and minimum temperature, RH at 7 AM and at 2 PM and rainfall was 29.5,21.0, 84.6 per cent, 71.6 per cent and 56.1 mm, respectively and lowest dead heart was observed at one week after germination. Maximum temperature (r= 0.649854), RH at 7 AM (r= -0.17913) and at RH 2 PM (r= -0.58671) had negative correlation with deadhearts caused by A. pulla.
