ABSTRACT: The comprehensive study was carried out during 2014 crop season for the comparisons of Sucking pests and Pod borer population against various treatments in Chickpea crop ecosystem at Nandikandi village of Sangareddy district, Telangana State. The pest control methods adapted were chemical, biological, Botanical pesticides and IPM (in which more than one of the above practices were included) and compared with farmers practice and untreated control.The assessment of the performance of various treatments on the Sucking pests and Pod borer populations were investigated. Aphids, Jassids, thrips and Whitefly population mean is lowest in IPM treatment followed by chemical control, farmer’s practice treatment, treatment with botanical pesticides and biological control. All the treatments were recorded significantly less than untreated control. Similarly lowest mean of large sized larvae of H. armigera and S.exigua   recorded in chemical control treatment followed by IPM, farmer’s practice, biological control and treatment with Botanical pesticides.

Key words: Chickpea, Sucking pests, Pod borer, H.armigera, IPM
