A six year field study was conducted from 2001-2002 to 2006-2007 at Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, India to study the losses in seed yield of different Brassica species (B. juncea, B. napus, B. carinata, B. rapa and Eruca sativa) by the infestation of insect pests. The experiment was conducted in two different sets viz. protected/sprayed and unprotected, in a randomized block design, with three replications. Data on the infestation of insect pests, and seed yield were recorded at… 
Assessment of avoidable yield losses in crop brassicas by insect-pests
TLDR
A five years’ field study was carried out to assess the avoidable yield losses in Brassica juncea and B. rapa due to insect-pests from 2011-12 to 2015-16 crop seasons at the Oilseeds Research Farm, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, India.
Potential of Ethiopian mustard, Brassica carinata as a trap crop for large white butterfly, Pieris brassicae infesting Indian mustard, Brassica juncea
TLDR
An attempt was made to evaluate Ethiopian mustard, Brassica carinata A. Braun as a trap crop to manage this pest as an alternate pest management strategy and female butterflies showed distinct oviposition preference for B.Carinata.
Development of PR genes panel for screening aphid-tolerant cultivars in Brassica juncea
TLDR
A pathogen-responsive gene panel was developed which could be used for expression-assisted breeding program in mustard for selection of tolerant types against aphid infestation, minimizing the huge crop losses suffered by farmers every year.
Screening of mustard varieties against sucking insect pests of mustard
TLDR
Five mustard varieties i.e. UCD-1202, NMT-8, Canola, Nawab Shah and P-25 was screened to evaluate the relative resistance against sucking insect pests and the population buildup of each sucking insect pest was monitored at weekly interval.
Rapeseed yield loss estimates through selected biotic pressures
The field experiment was conducted during Rabi season of 2015 at Viswavidyalaya farm on rapeseed with variety Benoy (B9) to study the effects of three major pests (weed, insect and pathogen) on
Assessment of Avoidable Yield Losses Due to Lipaphis erysimi Kalt in Various Brassica spp.
TLDR
Seven edible oilseeds cultivated in India are called rapeseed-mustard in vernacularly language and are traditionally grown as the major groups of winter oilseed crops under irrigated and natural rainfall areas of India.
Pathogenicity of ENTOMOPATHOGENIC nematodes against cabbage butterfly (PIERIS BRASSICAE) LINNAEUS (LEPIDOPTERA: PIERIDAE) in laboratory conditions
TLDR
It is concluded that H. bacteriophora and S. glaseri at 1500 IJs/ml concentration found very effective against P. brassicae in laboratory conditions and may be used in the field conditions.
Laboratory assessment of different botanical extracts and cypermethrin against insect pests
TLDR
A comparative study was conducted to assess the contact toxicities of Cypermethrin against important stored products insects, Sitophilus oryzae, the rice weevil, and Tribolium castaneum, the rust red flour and 4 th instar larvae of Culex pipen.
Differential response of intercrops to mitigate aphid (Homoptera: Aphididae) incidence on cruciferous crops
TLDR
The field study was conducted to determine the impact of intercropping of cabbage, cauliflower and mustard in combinations of onion garlic and fennel on incidence of aphid species and inferred minimized pest incidence if the main crops are cultivated in combination of inter cropping.
Field efficacy of insecticides against two different feeding guilds: the sap sucking Lipaphis erysimi (Kaltenbach) and foliage feeder Pieris brassicae (L.) infesting Indian mustard
TLDR
Four insecticides against both the large white butterfly and turnip aphid in Punjab, India are evaluated for their field efficacy at two locations and spray of chlorpyriphos 20 EC @ 1.5 litre ha-1 could be the best option for control of both the pests.

ASSESSMENT OF YIELD LOSSES IN MUSTARD (Brassica juncea L.) DUE TO MUSTARD APHID (Lipaphis erysimi Kalt.) UNDER DIFFERENT THERMAL ENVIRONMENTS IN EASTERN CENTRAL INDIA
TLDR
Yield attributes and yield of mustard was significantly decreased in delayed sowing even under protected conditions and the critical period of mustard exposure to aphids was found to be the 3 rd week after aphid appearance when the crop was in flowering stage and hence the con- trol measures have to be initiated before flowering.
