Author(s): SR Lakra, MK Chakravarty, N Kumar, Praveen Kumar and Nidhika Rani
Abstract: A set of 14 genotypes of pigeonpea was screened against pod borers ((Helicoverpa armigera, Exelastis atomosa, Maruca testulalis) at Research farm of Birsa agricultural University Kanke, Ranchi. The mean larval population of pod borers ranged from 0.40 to 2.00 larvae/plant. The experiment showed significantly lowest larval population in UPAS 120 and PA 374 as compared to other genotype. Among the 14 genotype PA374 recorded least pod damage of 1.7% followed by UPAS 120 (2%), PUSA 2011-2(6.44%),PA 382(9.22%) and was significantly better than other genotypes
