Abstract: Groundnut leaf miner, Aproaerema modicella (Deventer) belonging to the family Gelechiidae causing considerable yield losses to groundnut crop. An experiment was conducted to The studies on pheromone trap catches of groundnut leaf miner indicated that positive correlation with maximum temperature, morning relative humidity, rainfall, rainy days, sunshine hours while negative correlation with minimum temperature and evening relative humidity. Among the seven weather parameters, minimum temperature (-0.573), evening relative humidity (-0.477) showed significant negative influence on moth catches but morning relative humidity (0.493) showed significant positive influence on moth catches of A. modicella.
