Abstract:
The study was carried out at the Post Graduate Experimental Field of Department of Agricultural Entomology, College of Agriculture (Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani), Campus Latur, Dist. Latur, Maharashtra, India during 2020-21.This study evaluate that maximum number of egg laying by Atherigona soccata (2.9 eggs per plant), maximum number of dead heart (17 dead heart plants per quadrat) and maximum per cent dead heart (14 per cent dead heart) per quadrat were observed during 51th SMW during rabi season. The wind speed (r = -0.562*) was exhibited negatively significant with mean number of eggs per quadrat. However maximum temperature (r = -0.511*) and (r = -0.510*) showed negative significant correlation with mean number of dead heart and per cent of dead heart per quadrat, While wind speed (r = -0.590*) and (r = -0.585*) also exhibited negatively significant correlation with mean number of dead heart and per cent dead heart per quadrat, respectively.
