Abstract:

The present investigation on Predator prey relationship in different maize based planting pattern was carried out at Instructional farm and Department of Entomology, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, MPUAT, Udaipur. Maize variety Pratap maize-5 was sown with different intercrops viz., green gram, black gram, cowpea and soyabean in kharif, 2017. It was observed that the coefficient of correlation values (r) were positively significant for aphids and the aphidiphagous coccinellids in all the intercrop treatments: sole maize (0.94), maize + green gram (0.95), maize + black gram (0.74), maize + cowpea (0.77) and maize + soybean (0.90) conforming a density-dependent relationship and coefficient of correlation values (r) were significant and positive for aphids and their aphidiphagous syrphid fly maggots in all the intercrop treatments: sole maize (0.66), maize + green gram (0.79), maize + black gram (0.46), maize + cowpea (0.76) and maize + soybean (0.72), depicting a density-dependent relationship.
