Abstract:
The screening of ten genotypes/ varieties of mothbean, Vigna aconitifolia (Jacq.) Marechal viz., RMB-25, RMO-40, RMO-225, RMO-257, RMO-435, RMO-2251, CZM-2, RMO-3-5-70, MBS-605 and RMO-4-1-6-09 were investigated against major sucking insect pests viz. leafhopper, Empoasca motti (Pruthi.), whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) and thrips, Caliothrips indicus (Bagnall) during Kharif, 2019. During the investigation genotypes/ varieties RMO-40, RMO-257, CZM-2 and MBS-605 were found to be highly resistant to leafhopper and whitefly whereas, RMO-40, CZM-2 and MBS-605 to thrips. The genotypes/ varieties RMB-25, RMO-2251 and RMO-3-5-70 were found to be as moderately resistant to leafhopper and whitefly whereas, RMB-25, RMO-257, RMO-2251 and RMO-3-5-70 were categorized as moderately resistant to thrips and RMO-225, RMO-435 and RMO-4-1-6-09 were found to be as least resistant.
