An experiment was carried out during rabi seasons of 2017-18 at the farmer’s field, Allengmora, Jorhat to study the effect of weather parameters on population buildup of some minor insect pests of brinjal which could also play an important role for yield reduction of brinjal. Significant positive correlation of aphid, Aphis gossypii Glover(r= 0.662) and leafhopper, Amrasca biguttula biguttul Ishida (r= 0.560) was observed with maximum temperature. Therefore, in this context, the incidence of minor insect pests cannot be ignored for maximize the yield of brinjal crops. The different meteorological parameters, however did not show any positive significant effect against flea beetle, Monolepta signata Olivier on the population buildup of the pest during the present study.
