In Larica F1 15% Whitefly were observed and 11% Lepidopterans were observed in F1 hybrid. The Lowest population in Sygenta TO – 1057 is 8% of lepidopteran. 16% of Leaf minors in 1225 Hybrid F1. 15% of Whitefly in Mission 102 F1. 21% of Whitefly in Super prince F1. 9% of Aphids in Polo 295 F1. 8% of Aphids in Larica F1 and 5% OF Aphids in F1 Hybrid.
