A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of insecticides and bio pesticides against sucking insect pests on Bt cotton at College of Agriculture, Vijayapur during kharif-2016-17. The results revealed that the treatment flonicamid 50 WG was observed as significantly superior insecticide in minimizing the thrips population followed by fipronil 5 SC, acetamiprid 20 SP, dinotefuron 20 SG, diafenthiuron 50 WP and thiamethoxam 25 WG. However, significantly least population of aphids were observed from the plots which received flonicamid 50 WG, acetamiprid 20 SP, dinotefuran 20 SG and fipronil 5 SC, thiamethoxam 25 WG and diafenthiuron 50 WP. With respect to jassids and whiteflies, the least population were recorded from the plot treated with flonicamid 50 WG, dinotefuran 20 SG, diafenthiuron 50 WP, acetamiprid 20 SP, thiamethoxam 25 WG and fipronil 5 SC compared to untreated control.

Keywords: Bt cotton, thrips, aphids, jassids, whitefly, insecticides and bio pesticides
