Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted during Kharif- 2012 at Crop Research Centre (Chirori farm) of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut (U.P.) to characterize relationship of various meteorological parameters with sorghum shoot fly and stem borer incidence. In the experiment dead hearts of shoot fly start increasing observed first during in 16th to 22th July (29th standard weeks). And maximum dead hearts recorded during crop season from 13th to 19th August (33th standard week). In the experiment dead hearts of stem borer start increasing from 23th to 29th July (30th standard weeks) and maximum dead hearts of Chilo partellus (Rondani) were recorded during crop season from 20th to 26th August (34th standard weeks). The shoot fly and stem borer incidence in the form of dead hearts was correlated with the meteorological parameters corresponding to the period of observations.
