Insect pest constrains of jute and its control by biological agents under modern Eco-Friendly sustainable production system
Abdul Sadat, Kaushik Chakraborty
India is one of the world’s largest jute producing country. Insect pests are one of the main constrains for underscoring jute production. To ensure and to stabilize production, farmers generally apply huge amount of insecticides of different newer brands. Toxic chemicals not only not only underscore the environmental health but also impart long, persistent and perennial effect on the farmer’s health. Further, insect pest population evolved resistance to chemical pesticides due to producing large number of offspring with highest degree of mutation, variation, co-evolution and natural selection. Therefore emphasize on biological control in modern IPM practice to control insect pest population, by their natural enemy, predator and parasitoids is a time-needed programme. In biological control the ‘agents’ are targets on specific insect pest and control them without affecting other organisms and environment. The current review is an gross view on the processes of effective management of major insect pest of jute by biological agents under modern IPM Practices which broadly covers different scientific publication in different journals and contemporary works of the scientists.
