Experiments on ten commercially available genotypes of cauliflower, i.e. White corona, Snow mystique, Snow grece, Local, Clima, 5340, Sydney, Snow crown, White magic and AX-2034 were conducted during 2012-2014 at the Agricultural Research Institute Tarnab, Peshawar to screen out the commercially available cauliflower genotypes against Pieris brassicae ovipostion. The results of field experiments revealed that maximum number of Pieris brassicae eggs plant-1 were recorded on White magic (276.50 eggs plant-1) than any other studied genotype. And no egg laying were observed on Sydney and AX-2034.
