Incidence of shoot fly, Atherigona pulla (Wiedemann) on proso millet at different dates of sowing

Ravulapenta Sathish, M Manjunatha and K Rajashekarappa

The investigation was carried out to know the incidence of shoot fly on proso millet during 2015-16 at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences (ZAHRS), UAHS, Hiriyur. The shoot fly incidence was found to be higher in 15th July to 15th October sown crops. The peak incidence was observed on 15th August (23.0 % deadhearts) and 1st August (20.93 % deadhearts) sown crops whereas low incidence was on 1st May (0.59 % deadhearts) sown the crop. The higher number of eggs per plant was noticed on 15th August (2.05 eggs/plant) sown crop whereas low on 1st May (0.16 eggs/plant) sown crops Predatory coccinellids ((Coccinella transversalis Fabricius and Cheilomenes sexmaculata Fabricius) and larval parasitoids (Halticoptera sp. and Trichopria sp.) were predominant natural enemies of shoot fly observed in the proso millet ecosystem at different sowing dates. Shoot fly incidence had direct significant and negative association with the relative humidity.
