The incidence of Whitefly, Bemisia tabaci was first observed during 50th SMW i.e., second week of December with 3.87 fly /plant then it gradually increased and the maximum number of flies was observed during 2nd SMW i.e., second week of January with 4.00 fly /plant. The incidence of potato aphid, Myzus persicae was first observed during 49th SMW i.e., maximum number of potato aphid, Myzus persicae was observed during 3rdSMW i.e., third week of January with 14.13 aphid/plant. The tobacco caterpillar, Spodoptera litura revealed significant and negative correlation with maximum temperature (r= -0.635). The cutworm, Agrotis ipsilon revealed significant and negative correlation with morning relative humidity (r= -0.635).
