Response of brinjal (Solanum melongena Guen.) varieties for the resistant reaction against brinjal shoot and fruit borer (BSFB) and red spider mites (RSM)

Amit Kumar, Virender Kaul and Uma Shankar

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the response of twenty five brinjal varieties against brinjal shoot and fruit borer (Leucinodes orbonalis) and red spider mite (Tetranychus cinnabarinus) during 2014 and 2015 at research farm of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu, Chatha. The pooled data for the both the years of the study revealed that the ten varieties were showed tolerance, the five varieties were found moderately tolerant, the eight varieties were susceptible and the two varieties found highly susceptible reaction against brinjal shoot and fruit borer. Similarly, the response of brinjal varieties against red spider mite showed that the three varieties were moderately tolerant, the four varieties had low resistance, five varieties were found susceptible and thirteen varieties of brinjal were recorded as highly susceptible. The present research findings advocate that the varieties showed promise against these dreaded pests helped the farmers to fetch more remuneration from the crops and provide security for subsistence and livelihood.
