Author(s): Kamil Kabir Khanzada, Bina Khanzada
Abstract: The present experiment was carried out at Khanzada Agriculture Farm Nasarpur, Dist. Tando Allahyar. Before fruiting stage, the lowest number of aphid (5.33) was observed in neem seed kernel extract, which was significantly lower than rest of the treatments. In contrast, significantly higher number of aphid (11.33) was recorded in control plots followed by mustard extract. The highest reduction of population over control (50.64%) recorded in neem seed kernel extract treated plots followed by Garlic extract at fruiting stage as against the lowest reduction of aphid population over control was recorded in mustard seed extract treated plots. Moreover, the highest reduction of population over control (54.92%) recorded in neem seed kernel extract treated plots followed by Garlic extract at fruiting stage as against the lowest reduction (22.56%) of jassid population over control was recorded in mustard seed extract treated plots. On the other hand, significantly higher number of whitefly was observed in untreated control. No significant difference was observed between whitefly treated with Pyrethrin extract and Datura extract (16.67 and 17, respectively). The highest reduction of population over control (57.36%) recorded in neem seed kernel extract treated plots followed by Garlic extract treated plots (54.43%) at fruiting stage as against the lowest reduction (23.58%) of mealybug population over control was recorded in mustard seed extract treated plots.
