Studies were carried out on bio-efficacy of insecticide against brinjal jassid (Amrasca biguttula biguttula Ishida) and whitefly
(Bemisia tabaci Gennadius) at Regional Horticultural Research Station Farm, NAU, Navsari during 2011-12. Out of eight newer insecticides
tested at different intervals, pooled data indicated that minimum jassid population (4.71 jassids/three leaves) was recorded in plots treated with
imidacloprid and lower number of whiteflies were observed in plots treated with imidacloprid (8.08 whiteflies/three leaves).
