The study has mainly focused on basic aspects of oviposition preference and behavior of pink bollworm. in the present context, pink bollworm expanding its host ranges from commercial crop to vegetables.

From the Pink bollworm management perspective, our study emphasized on development of cotton genotypes based on the morphological characteristics.
