ABSTRACT

The experiment was conducted at Faisalabad in the trail region of UAF during 2018 to understand response of sucking insect pest fauna against the transgenic and non-transgenic cotton varieties. To figure out the response of these pest with the meteorological factors against whitefly, thrips and jassid. For this experiment RCBD Design was used. The five varieties of cotton were used in which IUB-2015, MNH-886, FH-142 and CEMB-33 were the Bt varieties while FH 942 was the non-Bt. The highest population of whitefly (4.707/leaf), thrips (4.073/leaf) and jassid (3.940/leaf) was found in July on MNH-886, CEMB-33 and FH-942 respectively. Extreme in addition least temperature had positive outcome on pests including whitefly, thrips and jassid culture. In case of thrips, whitefly and jassid rainfall, relative humidity and sunlight exposure had negative effects.The moisture having negative response with the whitefly and intermediate with the thrips population while with the jassid it exhibited positive correlation. Sucking pests also had an influence on the yield factor.
