Abstract

An experiment was conducted during kharif of 2007 and 2008 to study the infestation of shoot and fruit borer, Earias vittella (Fab.) on okra c.v. Kashi Pragati (VRO - 6). The mean data of 2007 and 2008 showed that the minimum shoot borer infestation 21.4 %  was recorded in the treatment NSKE 5%  followed by the treatment NSKE 5% + cow urine 5% (24.0 %)  and the maximum infestation 35.6 % was observed in cow dung extract 5% + cow urine 5%   plot followed by cow dung extract 5% alone (34.9). The mean of 2007 and 2008 for the fruit borer infestation showed  the minimum  borer infestation of 18.9 %  in the treatment NSKE 5%  followed by the treatment NSKE 5% + cow urine 5% (20.8 %)  and the maximum infestation of 41.7 % was observed in cow dung extract 5% + cow urine 5%   plot followed by cow dung extract 5 % alone (34.3 %).
