Abstract:

The pink bollworm (PBW) is an insect known for being a pest in cotton farming. In Maharashtra cotton growers are set to lose nearly 13 % of their output due to pink bollworm attacks on the standing crop in major production regions of the state. The impact of PBW attack has been felt the most in regions of vidarbha where cotton is cultivated as the main cash crop. Present study was conducted in six districts of Vidarbha region in Maharashtra considering the maximum area under cotton cultivation namely Buldana, Akola, Amravati, Yavatmal Wardha and Nagpur. A sample of 300 cotton growers were randomly selected from twelve taluka (two taluka from each district).The major constraints faced by cotton growers were non availability of labourers and high wage rate for undertaking the manual work of handpicking of larvae destruction of affected fruiting bodies and removal of rosette flower (95.00 %), non availability of biofungicides Beauveria bassiana at nearby market (90.33%), non availability of good quality pheromone trap & good quality pheromone lure (89.00%). In case of suggestions expressed by cotton growers overcome constraints were availability of biofungicides Beauveria bassiana should made available at subsidized rate nearby market, followed by availability of recommended insecticides should made available at subsidized rate in nearby market (94.33%), the government should made available good quality pheromone trap and lure used for pink bollworm at village level (93.00%), credit facilities should be increased and process should also easy and quick (87.33%).
