The field and laboratory experiments were carried out with twenty-two brinjal varieties during post–kharif season of 2013-2015 in the Central Research Farm, Gayeshpur, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya. The morphological characteristics of brinjal leaves are associated with attraction, feeding and oviposition of the insect pests. In 2013-2015 investigation, interaction between jassids incidence and morphological characteristics on brinjal revealed that the population of jassids, whitefly, shoot and fruit borer, and epilachna beetles was negatively correlated with leaf thickness and trichomes. The jassids, whitefly, epilachna beetles population was negatively correlated with leaf area but the aphid and shoot and fruit borer were positively correlated. Jassids, whitefly and aphids was negatively correlated with coccinellids predators and spiders while, the population of shoot and fruit borer and epilachna beetles showed positive correlation.

Keywords: Brinjal, Leaf area, Trichome, Leaf thickness.
