Brinjal (Solanum melongena) is a precious and nourishing vegetable grown worldwide in tropical and subtropical climates.
Jassid (Amrasca biguttula biguttulaI.) (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae),of which nymphs and adults suck the cell sap from the underside of the brinjal leaves resulting in curling and affecting the photosynthesis process. The present study aimed to study the effectiveness of biopesticides and their impact on jassid and its natural enemy in different seasons. The field experiment arranged in randomized block design includes six biorational insecticides such has (T1)-Spinosad 45 % SC @ 0.4ml/l, (T2)-Neem Seed Kernel Extract(NSKE) 1% @ 2ml/l, (T3)-Beauveria bassiana 1x 108 @ conidia/ml @ 10ml/l, (T4)-Metarhizium anisopliae1x 108 conidia/ml @ 10ml/l, (T5)-Verticillium lecanii 1x108 conidia/ml @ 10ml/land (T6)-Untreated plots replicated in four times. It is resulted that all the biorational pesticides performed significantly better than the control. However, among the treatments, application of (T3)-Beauveria bassiana 1x108 conidia/ml @ 10 ml/l and (T2)-Neem Seed Kernel Extract (NSKE) 1% @ 2 ml/l  was found to have significantly better results against jassid,during Rabi(2021) and Kharif season (2022) respectively. For predatory coccinellids,(T2) - Neem Seed Kernel Extract (NSKE) 1% @ 2 ml/l and(T1)-Spinosad 45 % SC @ 0.4ml/l were found to be better compared to other treatments in Rabi and Kharif season. This research will help to understand the importance of biopesticides with eco-friendly approaches to manage jassid.
