Abstract:

On 5th November 2011, stripped mealybug (Ferrisia virgata Cockerrel) was first noticed infesting on yam bean (Pachyrrhizus erosus (L) Urban) seed crop at the Regional Centre of Central Tuber Crops Research Institute, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. Analyses of weather data revealed that higher maximum and lower minimum temperatures coupled with wide diurnal variation of temperature from October to December during the year 2011 compared to decennial mean was observed. Further, a sharp decline in mean relative humidity and rainfall was observed between October and December during 2011 compared to decennial mean. It was observed 38.3% yam bean seed yield loss due to stripped mealybug infestation.
