Abstract

Monitoring of insect pests in groundnut ecosystem using traps (pheromone and yellow sticky traps) was carried
out at Main Agricultural Research Station, University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur, Karnataka for a period of
seven years (2012-2018). The pooled data of the trap catches showed that highest numbers of Spodoptera litura were caught during the 45th standard meteorological week (79.80/trap), while the leafhopper, thrips and leaf miner catches recorded highest numbers during 43rd (7.2/trap), 40th (7.6/trap) and 38th (4.2/trap) standard meteorological week, respectively.
