Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken during Kharif 2015 and Kharif 2016 to study the effect of habitat manipulation on infestation of rice leaf folder, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis (Guenee) under field condition. The leaf folder infestation was maximum in SMW 32, thereafter it gradually decreased up to SMW 36 and was in the range of 0.15 to 1.49 and 0.05 to 1.80 during both the years. The treatments Sunflower, Mustard, Sesame, Ekdandi, Cock’s comb, Marigold, Cosmos and Zinnia as flowering plants on rice bunds were found best for reducing the rice leaf folder infestation in both the years.


Keywords: Leaf folder, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis, Sunflower, Mustard, Sesame, Ekdandi, Cock’s comb, Marigold, Cosmos and Zinnia.
