Abstract:
Present investigation was carried out at Crop Research Centre (CRC) of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut during Kharif season, 2019 and 2020 to assess the insect-pests complex associated with basmati rice in Western Uttar Pradesh. Results revealed that in total eleven different insect species were found infesting the basmati cultivar PB-1509. Insect-pests includes borers viz. yellow stem borer (Scirpophaga incertulas Walker), sucking pests viz. brown plant hopper (Nilaparvata lugens Stal.), green leaf hopper (Nephotettix virescens Distant), white backed plant hopper (Sogatella furcifera Horvath) and earhead bug (Leptocorisa acuta Thunberg), defoliators viz. leaf folder (Cnaphalocrocis medinalis Guenee), rice Hispa (Dicladispa armigera Olivier), kharif grasshopper (Hieroglyphus banian Fabricius), army worm (Mythimna separata Walker) and caseworm (Nymphula depunctalis Walker) and root feeders viz. termites (Odontotermes obesus Rambur) were found damaging the crop during both the seasons. Severity of pests varies due to the environmental and other factors.
