A field experiment was conducted to study the response of cultivars/ hybrids/ germplasm of brinjal to major insect pests. The study revealed that the germplasm ADVANTA-314 was the best in reducing the damage of brinjal aphid Myzus persicae (Sulzer) while the germ plasm TWINKLE STAR is resistant to leafhopper, Amrasca devastans and TWINKLE STAR, DILL and ADVANTA-314 showed significant resistance against whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius). Furthermore, the cultivar KHBR-202 is recorded deterrent to thrips Frankliniella occidentalis.
