Incidence of red spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) on ladysfinger and their sustainable management SUNIL KR. GHOSH Department of Agricultural Entomology, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya (University), AINP on Acarology, Kalyani, West Bengal-741235 India. E-mail ID: [email protected] Ladysfinger (Abelmoschus esculentus L.) belongs to the family Malvaceae is one of the most important vegetable crops grown in various parts of tropical

and sub-tropical areas of the globe. In the sub-Himalayan region of north east India Ladysfinger is cultivated round the year except winter at a commercial scale but insect and mite pest constitute limiting factors in successful production. The major pests causing damage to okra Leaf hopper/ Jassid- Amrasca biguttula biguttula (Cicadellidae, Hemiptera) Shoot and fruit borer- Earias vitella, E. insulana (Noctuidae,Lepidoptera) Leaf roller-

Sylepta derogata (Pyraustidae,Lepidoptera) Red cotton bug-Dysdercus cingulatus (Pyrrhocoridae, Hemiptera) AphidWhite fly- Aphis gossypii Bemisia tabaci Different species of Flea Beetle (Aphididae, Hemiptera) (Aleyrodidae, hemiptera)

Red Spider Mite- Tetranychus urticae The Flea beetle found dominated in the ladysfinger field , Podagrica bowringi Altica ambiens Phyllotreta striolata Agelastica alni Agelastica alni Syagrus calcaratus

The Flea beetle damage symptoms Jassid- the pest Both nymphs and adults suck the sap from the undersurface of leaves While feeding, they inject toxic saliva into plant tissue. Aphid Damage FRUIT BORER They directly damage the edible part i.e., fruits

Damaged fruit White fly: Nymph and adult Vector of YVM White fly- the damage it cause Affected leaves yellowing, drying Stunted growth, reduces flower and fruit setting, fruits smaller in size Transmit viral disease like mosaic Cause up to 63.41% yield loss Tetranychus urticae

Non-significant positive correlation (p=0.05) with temp. and significant positive correlation with minimum and average RH Significant negative correlation with temp. gradient and with weekly total rainfall. Results and discussion Fig. 2 and 3 represents mite distribution within the plants as follows Most densely populated on the upper canopy (54.32 % population) Moderately populated on the middle canopy (28.79 % population) Thin population on the lower canopy (16.89 % population)

Control of pests with synthetic insecticides Pests on vegetable crops can be ontrolled easily with highly toxic insecticides viz. BHC, aldrin, dieldrin, heptachlor, toxaphene, methyl parathion, monocrotophos, phorate, carbofuran, dimethoate, etc. Problems arise from synthetic insecticides Pesticides accumulate in the environment Contaminate all the systems i.e. air, water, soil, plant, animal etc. Destroy biodiversity bring out ecological disturbance and environmental pollution. The uptake of insecticide residues by some

crops particularly vegetables adversely affects our health. Destroy eco-friendly bio-control agent pesticides disturb the microbial activity of the soil, adversely affect earth worm, predatory mites. Adverse affect on some invertebrates who were responsible soil fertility. Destroy Lady bird beetle and spider population and thus hamper natural control of pest in vegetable field Lady Bird Beetle As Predator (Bio-control agent)

spider Management of the pests The Objectives An attempt has been made to formulate suitable control measure with the use of: Botanical Insecticides (Biopesticides) Botanical Extracts (Biopesticides) Microbial toxins (Biopesticides)

flea beetle population (79.24% suppression), closely followed by Avermectin (76 .40%) and mixed formulation neem and spilanthes (70.66%). among the biopesticides, However, Avermectin was found most effective followed by mixed formulation neem and spilanthes. CONCLUSION From overall observations: most active during May--June and September--October in this region, deliberate

control measure should be adopted. Upper canopy densely populated, so properly treated. Avermectin and Azadiractin with Plant extracts spilanthes (bio-pesticides) gave better control, be incorporated in IPM programme and organic farming in vegetable cultivation due to their: moderate to higher efficacy Lower toxicity for natural enemies Minimum adverse impact on human health Safer to the environment
