Abstract:
Investigations on seasonal abundance of serpentine leaf miner, Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess) and whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) were carried out in Hi-Tech Horticulture Park at Department of Horticulture & Department of Entomology, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during the Kharif, 2014-15 and the results revealed that the mines were increasing with the increasing of SMW as the first peak was observed after ninth week of transplanting (44th SMW) and thereafter population declined upto 46th week (11th WAT). Once again, the mines were continuously increased up to the second peak during 9th SMW (26th WAT) and then the population was slightly declined. While, the highest whitefly population was recorded during 49th SMW (14th WAT) and considered as a peak damaging stage. The correlation matrix indicated that number of mines caused by serpentine leaf miner on tomato leaves exhibited negative correlation with maximum temperature, whereas minimum temperature, morning relative humidity and evening relative humidity were found highly significant and negatively correlated with mines on leaves.
