Abstract


ULCVD is the most prevailing threat to mungbean and urdbean worldwide. ULCV is a seed born virus and also transmit through insect vectors. Among all vectors, whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) is the most devastating vector in causing this disease. Different mungbean genotypes were sown under natural conditions. The efficacy of different plant extracts (garlic, bougainvillea, onion) against whitefly population and ULCV was determined. Results showed that plant extracts can be useful to manage the disease and vector populations. Garlic extract was found effective and minimum disease severity of 10.48% with least whitefly population 1.27, was seen on plants that were sprayed with garlic extract followed by bougainvillea and onion.
