Abstract:

Seasonal Incidence of Tobacco leaf eating caterpillar and Leaf miner of groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) was studied during July to October 2016, at Research farm, College of agriculture, Kolhapur. Groundnut crop was infested by Tobacco leaf eating caterpillar (Spodoptera litura Fab.), Leaf miner (Aproarema modicella Deventer). The study revealed that the incidence of Tobacco leaf eating caterpillar started in 3rd week of August; and Leaf miner 1st week of August. The population of Tobacco leaf eating caterpillar (Spodoptera litura), the population started increasing slowly and reached to its peak in the 35th MW corresponding to September 1st week 3.93 larvae/mrl. The population of Leaf miner (Aproarema modicella).The infestation started increasing slowly and reached to its peak in the 34th MW corresponding to August 4th week 19.00 per cent. The population of Tobacco leaf eating caterpillar was showed negatively non-significant with rainfall and positively significant with temperature and relative humidity. The Leaf miner population was negatively non-significant with temperature and positively significant with relative humidity and rainfall.
