Abstract:

An experiment was carried out during the year of 2016 in the first crop rearing of Tasar silkworm at Pilot Project Centre (PPC), Kathikund with replicated thrice in completely randomized block design. The treatments consists with three brushing date of tasar larva in the month of July (i.e., 16th, 21st and 26th at an interval of 5 days) and four directions (i.e., North, South, East and West). Daily weather and predator’s data have been collected from rearing field and expressed in weekly basis. Interactive relationship was made between weather and predators in tasar silkworm by using weekly data. On the basis of interactive approach between weekly weather and predators’ data, we found that congenial weather condition was favorable for high infestation of predators during 31st standard meteorological week (SMW). After and before 31st SMW, the predator’s infestation was very low or absence in all date of brushing and direction, which indicates after and before 31st SMW week, weather condition was unfavorable for predators. On the basis of above results, we can forewarn to tasar sericulture farmers for adapting best integrated pest management practices before31st SMW or any weeks weather going to congenial for predators during 1st crop rearing.
