The field experiment was conducted at Masordia, Madukhali, Faridpur Sugar Mills area, Faridpur during the cropping season of 2014--2017 to find out the development of management practices against sugarcane grasshopper for commercial cultivation of sugarcane. The experiment was designed in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications and comprised of six treatments. In three cropping seasons, the highest efficacy was found in treatment T4 (Weeding and mulching at once month interval + Nitro 505 EC @ 3.0 L.ha-1 ) of 86.23%, 82.72% and 82.34% respectively followed by 82.53%, 80.91% and 78.44% respectively whereas the lowest efficacy was found from T1 (Weeding and mulching at once month interval) of 4.32%, 7.79% and 7.53% respectively. Nevertheless, the three consecutive cropping seasons Bio-control agent treated plot showed 24.83%, 33.67% and 34.77% efficacy. This study revealed that Weeding and mulching + Nitro 505 EC insecticides application management practices best effective control against grasshopper in sugarcane cultivation. This technique will also be applied in others sugarcane growing areas of Bangladesh.
