Investigations were carried out at Agronomy Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during Kharif, 2015 for evaluation of various insecticides on the incidence of sucking pests viz., aphids (Aphis craccivora Koch), jassids (Empoasca kerri Pruthi), whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci Gennadius), thrips (Thrips palmi Karny), flower thrips (Megalurothrips usitatus Bagnall) in green gram. Among the various insecticides evaluated for their field efficacy against sucking pests, thiamethoxam 25 WG (0.01%) and imidacloprid 70 WG (0.014%) were found more effective followed by dimethoate 30 EC (0.03%). The effectiveness of these treatments also reflected on green gram yield. Higher Incremental Cost Benefit Ratio (ICBR) was also obtained in these treatments.

Keywords: Insecticides, Aphids, Jassids, Whitefly, Thrips, Flower thrips.
