Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted with thirty four brinjal cultivars during September 2013 to December 2013 to identify shoot and fruit characteristics of brinjal plants for their susceptibility/resistance against brinjal shoot and fruit borer infestation. Borer infestation was influenced by different characters of plant shoot and fruit. Various parameters like plant height stem diameter, number of branches and leaves per plant, third leaf length, phenol content in shoot and fruit length, fruit weight, mesocarp thickness, number of seeds, phenol content and tannin content in fruit were recorded from different cultivars used. The shoot infestation highly significant and gave a very strong significant negative correlation between shoot infestation with leaf trichomes (-0.391*) and biochemical factors like phenol content (-0.710**).Fruit infestation had negative significant correlation with fruit weight (-0.455**), mesocarp thickness (-0.389*), number of seeds (-0.740**), phenol content (-0.357*) and yield (-0.825**). The trichomes and hairs on different parts of the plant seem to have a significant role towards non preference for fruit infestation and Phenol content had a high negative direct effect on shoot and fruit borer infestation.
