In order to assess Maruca vitrata (Geyer) damage in green gram and the initiation of control measure with the concept of economic injury level, the experiment was carried out during kharif season of 2012 and 2013 at Anand Agricultural University, Anand. The investigation on Economic Injury Level (EIL) of M. vitrata was determined as 0.83 and 0.71 larva per meter row, while Economic Threshold Level (ETL) were found 0.62 and 0.53 larva per meter row during first and second year, respectively. On the basis of mean of two years, the EIL and ETL values of M. vitrata were 0.77 and 0.58 larva per meter row (i.e. ETL ≈ 1 larva/2-meter row) in green gram, respectively.

Keywords: Maruca vitrata, Economic Injury Level, Economic Threshold Level, Green gram
