Abstract:
An experimental study was carried out at fruit orchards, SKUAST-J for two consecutive years (2019 and 2020) to refine Male Annihilation Technique (MAT) and Bait Attractant Technique (BAT) against fruit flies in mango, peach and guava. The results of the study revealed that highest trap catches of fruit flies were recorded in commercially available green valley fruit fly traps followed by another commercially available traps (PCI) and least trap catches were recorded in cue-lure+absorbent plastic in all the three fruit crops. The pooled data of two years (2019 and 2020) revealed that commercially available green valley fruit fly traps followed by commercially available PCI traps attracted the highest fruit fly population of 371.50, 378.50 and 319.83 fruit flies/trap catch and 325.00, 334.00 and 276.50 fruit flies/trap catch in mango, guava and peach, respectively. Cue-lure+absorbent plastic recorded mean trap catch of 89.67, 100.83 and 66.33 fruit flies per trap in mango, guava and banana, respectively.
