An experiment was conducted to observe the seasonal incidence of cabbage insect pests viz., diamond back moth, cabbage head borer, cabbage leaf webber, cabbage aphid and lady bird beetle on cabbage during Rabi season, 2021-22 at Organic Research Farm Kargua Ji, Department of Entomology, Institute of Agricultural Science, Bundelkhand University Jhansi, (Utter Pradesh). Major activity period of diamond back moth (Plutella xylostella) population appeared during 49th SMW and the peak incidence during 3rd SMW (9.0 larva/plant) and cabbage head borer (Hellula undalis) caterpillar population initiated during 51th SMW and reach its peak incidence 2nd SMW (5.0 larva/plant) respectively while cabbage leaf webber (Crocidolomia binotalis) appeared from 48th SMW to 8th SMW with peak incidence in 1th SMW (4.3 larva/plant). Cabbage aphid (Brevicoryne brassica) were observed from 49th SMW to 8th SMW with peak incidence in 5th SMW (41.0 larva/plant) and lady bird beetle (Coccinella septempunctata) appeared from 49th SMW to 8th SMW with peak incidence 4th SMW (1.0 larva/plant) respectively.
