Application of chemicals in agricultural field increases day by day hence, the insect pests develop resistance against most of the agrochemicals. As a result of resistance, farmers are used more amount of chemicals as compare to their normal doses resulting increase in cost of cultivation and it also harmful to the human being and deteriorate the soil quality. So, an attempt was made to collect the information of some resistance cultivars against okra borer pest complex.

Insect, agrochemical, resistance, cultivar, farmer, okra.
