EFFECT OF PHEROMONE TRAP ON INCIDENCE OF BRINJAL SHOOT AND FRUIT BORER, LEUCINODES ORBONALIS GUEN
The eco-friendly insect-pest management consisting mass trapping through sex pheromone trap in different experiment fields (Agronomy farm and Farmer’s field) reported higher fruit yield with the lowest fruit damage compared to control area whereas Farmer’s field reported highest yield (395.12 q/ ha) and lowest shoot damage (8.42%) and fruit damage (6.51% and 6.29%) on number basis and weight basis, respectively. There was highly significant positive association between moth catches and shoot damage (r= 0.8241** and r= 0.7656**) as well as with fruit damage (r= 0.7153** and r= 0.7426**) from Agronomy farm and Farmer’s field, respectively. The highest marketable fruit yield (395.12 q/ha) obtained in Farmer’s field with higher per cent increase over control in both number (19.66%) and weight (22.67%) basis, respectively.
