Impact of Weather on Seasonality of Phytophagous Mites and Their Natural Enemies Associated With Citrus in Vidharbha Region of Maharashtra , India
Plant inhabiting mites on major citrus cultivars from three districts in Maharashtra, India and their associated natural enemies were documented during spring, summer and autumn seasons throughExpand
Current status of insecticide resistance in Aphis gossypii and Aphis spiraecola (Hemiptera: Aphididae) under central Indian conditions in citrus
The resistance ratio values indicated that the current levels in aphid population from major citrus belts of Maharashtra are in very low resistance category, and neonicotinoid group proved the most effective in causing mortality. Expand
Relative Susceptibility of Phyllocnistis citrella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) to Commonly Used Insecticides in Maharashtra, India
Foliar application of insecticides has been the most commonly followed practice to manage Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton in nurseries and flush leaves in citrus groves and Resistance ratio values calculated based on the baseline susceptible culture indicated that the current RR values were in low levels.

Monitoring of Resistance in Field Populations of Scirtothrips dorsalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Liviidae) to Commonly Used Insecticides in Citrus in Central India
Results from this study indicate that the evolution of insecticide resistance and cross-resistance may be decelerated by the rotational use of insecticides with different modes of action. Expand
Field Testing of Indigenously Synthesized Sex Pheromone for the Management of Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton under Central Indian Conditions
The objective of this study was to determine the optimum height and dose of the indigenously synthesized sex pheromone of citrus leaf miner, Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton for the management ofExpand
Effect of buprofezin on developmental stages of Diaphorina Citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Liviidae)
Bprofezin may be incorporated as a management tactic in rotation with insecticides especially during flush emergence after further field evaluation as it has significant effect on growth, reproduction and survival of citrus psylla. Expand
Mallada desjardinsi(Navas): A chrysopid predator on sucking and mite pests of citrus
Predatory potential of Mallada desjardinsi (Navas) was studied on nymphs of citrus psylla, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, citrus blackfly, Aleurocanthus woglumi Ashby, aphid Aphis gossypii Glover and Oriental red mite along with eggs of rice grain moth, Corcyra cephalonica under laboratory conditions to substantiate the host utility for mass multiplication.

Evaluation of foliar vis-a-vis soil application of certain insecticides against Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton
The results indicated that soil application of neonicotinoid insecticides remained more effective against leaf miner larvae for longer duration as compared to foliar application. Expand
Response of Nagpur mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco) to high density planting systems
In the present study, Nagpur mandarin budded on Rangpur lime rootstock was evaluated under six different planting spacings and it was observed that the organic carbon, major nutrients and plant density increased vis-à-vis plant density and was highest under 2 × 2 m spacing. Expand
