Investigation on “Screen pigeon pea genotypes under field conditions against pod borer complex”. Was conducted, at the Research cum Instructional Farm of Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur during Kharif - Rabi 2012-13 and 2013-14. In the genotype screening against pod borer complex viz. M. vitrata, H. armigera and M. obtusa, it was found that the germplasm ICP 6996 showed a minimum larval population, minimum pod damage, minimum grain damage, least pest susceptibility rating and gave maximum yield. The second least susceptible germplasm was ICP 7374, followed by ICP 7005, ICP 7406, ICP 7392, ICP 7404, ICP 7003, ICP 6994, ICP 7405, ICP 6999, ICP 7373, ICP 7391, ICP 7387, ICP 7393, Rajeevlochan, ICP 7398, ICP 7004, ICPL 87119, ICP 7379 and ICP 7409.
