The experiment was conducted during kharif of 2007 and 2008 to know the infestation of shoot and fruit borer, Earias vittella (Fab.) on okra c.v. Kashi Pragati (VRO - 6). The minimum shoot damage on imidacloprid (5.0 %) treated plot followed by neem leaf extract (25.5 %), marigold leaf extract (28.5 %) with highest damage on castor leaf extract treated (34.3) while minimum fruit damage on imidacloprid (4.9 %) treated plot followed by neem leaf extract (25.1 %), marigold leaf extract (31.3 %) with highest damage on castor leaf extract treated plot (36.4 %).
