EFFECT OF CROP BIODIVERSITY ON PIGEONPEA DAMAGE AND YIELD DUE TO POD INFESTING PEST COMPLEXK.G. Ambhure, V.R. Gaikwad and U.A. Pawar
A field experiment was conducted at experimental field of Department of Entomology, Live Stock Farm, Adhartal, J.N.K.V.V., Jabalpur (M.P.) during kharif season 2011-2012. The present study revealed that crop habitat significantly influenced the incidence of pod infesting pest complex, Pigeonpea bordered with maize (PP-M) was found to be most promising as it recorded minimum grain damage by pod infesting pest complex and registered highest grain yield, followed by pigeonpea bordered with sorghum (PP-S) and sole pigeonpea (PP) respectively.
