Abstract


Thrips, Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood is emerging as a major pest of mango throughout India. Field studies were conducted at four major mango growing areas of India viz., Bengaluru (Karnataka), Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh), Periyakulam (Tamil Nadu) and Vengurle (Maharashtra) on the management of thrips on mango by using entomopathogens for three consecutive years from 2015-16 to 2017-18. Treatments were applied as foliar sprays at weekly interval starting from the flower initiation. The results revealed that spray of Metarhizium anisopliae (IIHR oil formulation @ 0.5 ml/l) was the most effective for management of thrips on mango.
