Abstract:
Okra is an important vegetable crop for Indian agriculture and is grown extensively throughout the year in all parts in India. Sucking complex like whitefly Bemisia tabaci, jassid Amrasca biguttula biguttula and aphid Aphis gossypii are more deleterious insect pests pose a major threat, affecting the okra production. While screening for whitefly resistance, it was noted that Arka Anamika and Pusa A-4 were found to be resistant against whitefly population and on the other site Pusa Sawani and EC-169417 were found to be susceptible with highest average whitefly population during both the year of experimentation (2018-19 & 2019-20).
