Abstract:

The main aim of the study was to reduce the maximum use of pesticides, these pesticides increases pest resurgence, environmental pollution and toxic residue in food. Efforts were being made to encourage those pest management practices which are ecofriendly. Pooled mean of both the years during 2016 and 2017 revealed that minimum population of leafhopper nymphs was recorded in cotton intercropped with bajra as border crop (2.47 nymphs/leaf) and maximum population was recorded in sole cotton (3.54 nymphs/leaf). Minimum population of thrips adults was recorded in cotton intercropped with bajra as border crop (2.24 adults/leaf) and maximum population in sole cotton (3.88 adults/leaf), and minimum population of whitefly adults was recorded in cotton intercropped with sorghum as border crop (2.52 adults/leaf) and maximum population in sole cotton (3.97 adults/leaf). In both the years 2016 and 2017, highest population of spiders and Chrysoperla spp. was recorded in cotton-sesame intercropping and lowest in sole cotton, and highest coccinellid beetles in cotton-pigeonpea intercropping system and lowest in sole cotton.
