Abstract:
The field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2020 at Instructional farm of BTC College of Agriculture and Research Station, Bilaspur, IGKV, Raipur (C.G.). The studies on the seasonal incidence of gundhi bug, Leptocorisa acuta Thunberg infesting scented rice that the first appearance of pest was started during second week of September 2020 (37th SMW) and attended peak (4.8 nymphs and adults/hill) in the first week of November 2020 (45th SMW). The correlation studies revealed that minimum temperature (r = -0.668), average temperature (r = -0.547), morning relative humidity (r = -0.671), evening relative humidity (r = -0.853), average relative humidity (r = -0.859) and rainfall (r = -0.616) had significant negative correlation and significantly positive correlated with sunshine hours (r = 0.767), while the maximum temperature showed non significant correlation with nymphs and adults of gundhi bug.
