Abstract


Improving the habitat and impact of natural control agents is perhaps the most neglected and needs greater attention into promotion and conservation of natural enemy fauna. Host plant resistance based on physic-chemical traits of pod, viz thickness of pod wall, trachoma density (Moudgal et al. 2007), holds promises as an important tool for the management of this pest and needs priority. Follow up of large scale IPM demonstration indicates that initial gain in use of neem and NPV products as alternative to chemical pesticides have suffered from poor and highly variable quality apart from their limited availability than conventional insecticides.
