Ashish Kumar Pandey, RS Bhatia and MP Gautam

The present investigations entitled on “Determine the incidence of fruit borer (Conopomorpha litchiella) in main litchi growing areas of the (Himachal Pradesh) India” was carried out during the year 2014-15. The studies on the incidence were carried out in five litchi growing districts of Himachal Pradesh. To assess the incidence of the pest, a survey was carried out in important litchi orchards in Kangra, Hamirpur, Mandi, Bilaspur and Sirmour districts of the state. At the time of harvest, 50 fruits per tree were selected at random from different varieties. The harvested fruits were examined for the presence of the borer larvae by peeling off the fruit skin at the pedicel end. The studies on incidence of fruit borer, Conopomorpha litchiella infesting litchi revealed maximum incidence of the borer pest in Kangra district followed by Mandi, Sirmour, Hamirpur and Bilaspur, respectively.
