Abstract:

In an study on diversity of insect and non-insect pests infesting karanja, Pongamia pinnata (l.) pierre and their natural enemies at, a total of 28 species of insects including an acarine and 12 species of natural enemies were recorded during 2018-2019. The phytophagus insects were categorized under 5 groups viz. Foliage feeders or defoliators , Stem borers ,Bark borers ,sap feeders and seed feeders Peak infestation due to eriophyid mite was recorded during second fortnight of May 2018 (50.35%).and maximum number of galls per branch due to agromyzid fly infestation was observed in 1st fortnight of August (6.45 galls per branch) and maximum mean number of maggots recovered per gall was 8.50 in 1st fortnight of August2018. The mean percentage plant infestation due to leaf miner attack was varied from minimum of 15% infestation during 1st fortnight of December 2018 to a maximum of 89.00% as recorded during first fortnight of October, 2018.
