Abstract:
The incidence and abundance of insect pests associated with sesame varieties were recorded during Summer, 2002 in the experminental field of Oilseed Section, Agriculture Research Institute, Tanadojam. Four sesame varieties S-17, PR-19/9, PR-28/88 and PR-37/88 were tested. Five insect species i.e. plant bug, whitefly, aphid, thrip and leaf rolled/webber were recorded attacking sesame. Leaf roller/webber was found in highest number during capsule formation and early vegetative stage, while lowest during flowering. Whitefly and bug population was relatively higher during the later vegetative phase. Thrips and aphids were observed from seedling stage and remained active upto crop maturity. However, aphid population was alarming and reached at peak in the 10th week in August. The varieties PR-19/9 and S-17 showed relative resistance against these insects, while PR-37/88 and PR-29/88 were relative susceptible for these insect pests. The varieties PR-19/9 and S-17 yielded significantly higher than susceptible ones i.e. PR-29/88 and PR-37/88.

adebowale olanike:
these might be true, but i think this should be repeated during an off season and result compared for affirmation. Aspervia armegera and Nezeria veredula are two insects that cause alot of damage at the early stage of the plant
