Estimation of crop losses in lentil due to insect pests associated with crop growth at Pantnagar, India


, : Estimation of crop losses in lentil due to insect pests associated with crop growth at Pantnagar, India. Lens 19(1): 36-39

Field crop losses due to major insect pests associated with the lentil (Lens culinaris) large-seeded Pant L234 and small-seeded L639 during crop growth were studied when the crop was exposed completely/partially to pest damage in comparison to that under complete insecticide protection. Insect pests did not have significant effect on the plant height or number of plants/plot or 1000-grain weight in two years (1985-86 and 1986-87) of field experimentation.
