Seasonal Incidence of Spodoptera litura (F.) on Soybean
Keywords:Seasonal Incidence, Spodoptera litura, Soybean, Kharif, Sowing Dates, Minimum Incidence, Population.
An investigation was carried out to “Study on seasonal incidence of Spodoptera litura (F.) on soybean” at Agriculture Research Station (ARS), Adilabad, Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University during kharif, 2017 and 2018. The pooled results indicated that among different sowing dates viz., 15 th -18 th of June (sowing I), 25 th -28 th of June (sowing II), 5 th -7 th of July (sowing III), 15 th -17 th of July (sowing IV) and 25 th -27 th of July (sowing V) sowing I recorded minimum incidence (2.81 larvae/ meter row length) of S. litura population and maximum incidence in sowing II (4.34 larvae/ meter row length), similarly sowing I recorded minimum incidence (2.97 larvae/ meter row length) and maximum incidence in sowing II (4.34 larvae/ meter row length) during kharif, 2017 and 2018, respectively.
