Khejri (Prosopis cineraria) suffers from a severe infestation of inflorescence/flower gall caused by Eriophyes prosopidis, adversely affecting the yield of sangria in Rajasthan. These galls are green in colour initially and turn to brownish on maturity. It has been observed that in case of heavy infestation the inflorescence spikes may be completely devoid of pods affecting the yield of sangri tremendously.
