A field trial was conducted at Regional Research station, NHRDF, Nashik in three consecutive years during Rabi 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 on onion variety Agrifound Light Red for the management of onion thrips by applying different doses of nitrogen as basal application. The result showed that, lowest mean thrips population (22.56 nymphs/plant) were recorded in without N (0 % Nitrogen), however, highest gross yield (306.89q/ha) was recorded in higher application of N (100% of the recommended dose as basal application through calcium nitrate).
