Brinjal shoot and fruit borer, Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is the most prevalent and destructive pest of brinjal in Bangladesh as well as in Asia. The study was conducted during the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 cropping season at Bandarban hill and valleys of Chattogram, Bangladesh to develop sustainable and eco-friendly management techniques for cultivating brinjal to control brinjal shoot and fruit borer (BSFB). The study was conducted following randomized complete block design (RCBD) having seven treatments combination. Each treatment was replicated three times. Among the treatments, T3 reduced the highest infestation of shoot and fruit by 95.96% and 94.85% over control, respectively. The highest brinjal yield (31.56 ton/ha) and the highest moth captured (75.88) throughout the season were achieved by the same treatment. Spraying of voliam flexi 300SC @ 0.5 ml Liter-1 water at 10 days an interval+hand collection & destruction of infested fruits and larvae+pheromone trap+nappy trap goes to be the foremost effective treatment to manage brinjal shoot and fruit borer in the hilly areas of Bandarban.
