The field experiment was carried out on farmers holding at Melur block of Madurai dt using the popular brinjal variety Kallampatti local during summer 2016 to evaluate the efficacy of certain promising plant derivatives against major sucking pests of brinjal viz., aphids, brown plant hopper, thrips, whiteflies and two spotted spider mites. The overall impact of three rounds of spray revealed that basil leaf extract 10% caused maximum reduction of sucking pest population followed by Nochi leaf extract 5%, apart from this, Neem oil 3% had moderate efficacy against sucking pests followed by Rosemary oil 2%, Cashew nut shell liquid 3%, Garlic bulb extract 10%. Followed by Soap nut powder extract 10%, Fish oil rosin soap 20%.

Keywords: Brinjal pests, Efficacy of plant derivatives, Botanical pest management, Eco friendly pest management.
