The infestation of diamondback moth started from the third week of November and reached peak (45.2 larvae /10 plants) in the first week of January. The maximum and minimum temperature showed significant negative correlation with larval population of diamondback moth whereas, non-significant correlation with relative humidity and sunshine hours. The coccinellid beetle was recorded as an important predator of aphid, which was maximum (20.2 /10 plants) in the fourth week of January.
