Abstract:

Fruit fly is a serious pest not only of cucurbits but other also of vegetable and fruit crops causing huge losses to farmers in Udaipur district. In spite of using hazardous pesticides, farmers are bound to bear about 30 – 70 % yield loss every year due to the attack of fruit fly. Various front line demonstrations(FLD) of cue lure containing pheromone traps were laid out by KVK Badgaon, Udaipur at the fields of bitter gourd growers of the tribal dominated area during two consecutive years (2019– 2020) to introduce and promote the ecofriendly management technology of fruit flies by installation of 20 traps/ha. The technology was found feasible, cheaper as well as easy to adopt at farmer’s field. An average of 31.03 per cent increased yield was observed resulting ₹60675 average increased income per hectare comparing with plots under farmer’s practice where traps were not installed. It’s very economic and ecofriendly method for the management of fruit flies.
