Amongst them brinjal jassid, Amrasca devastans Dist caused the severe damage to it and significantly affect its productivity and tastes. Results showed that after bio-pesticides sprays, the overall maximum reduction in jassid population were observed in neem oil (71.04%) followed by neem oil + beneficial microorganism (64.33%), neem powder (60.78%) and tobacco leaves (55.86%) respectively.
