Studies on the effect of IPM, chemical, botanicals and cultural practices on hopper showed that hopper population was effectively controlled in insecticide, IPM, insecticide + botanical pesticide and botanical pesticide whereas maximum hopper population was recorded in control. Fruit set per 100 panicles was significantly higher than control in all treatment whereas it was at par among IPM, insecticide alone and insecticide + botanical pesticide. Fruits harvested were maximum in IPM followed by insecticide and insecticide + botanical pesticide whereas no significant differences in fruits harvest were observed between cultural+ mechanical practices and control. Fruit weight was maximum in IPM followed by insecticide + botanical pesticide and insecticide alone. Lowest fruit weight was observed in control.
