Evaluation of Colored Sticky Traps for Monitoring and Managing the Jassid Population in Okra

Tufail Ahmed Wagan


This field experiment was designed to observe jassid’s (Amrasca devastans) attraction to sticky paper with four different colors (yellow, black, red, and green) positioned in okra crops. The colored sticky papers were placed on wooden sticks that were positioned randomly 5 meters apart between sheets and 30 cm above the plant. The results of this experiment showed that the green, followed by red, black, and yellow, sticky paper is the most effective, attractive, and convenient colored paper for controlling the jassid population in okra crops. The sticky colored cards are an alternative, effective, and exclusive tool for managing the jassid population in okra crops.
