Abstract:
The wooly aphid Ceratovacuna lanigera (Zehnt) is one of the dreaded pests of sugarcane. The present investigation deals with the biochemical changes occurring during sugarcane wooly aphid infestation. At low infestation level chlorophyll a, b and total chlorophyll was reduced to 23, 08 and 18%, respectively as compare to healthy plant. At high infestation, level of chlorophyll a, b and total chlorophyll was further reduced to 40, 30 and 37%, respectively. On the contrary level of polyphenol was increased with the level of infestation and about 41% increase was observed at high infestation level. The juice quality analysis had shown that pest infestation also affect juice quality considerably.
