Recommendation made by Department of Entomology for farmers:
Year:2015-16: NIL
Year:2016-17
1.  Field Efficacy of Different Insecticides against Citrus Pests
     For effective management of leaf miner and blackfly in citrus orchard under South Saurashtra Agro-climatic Zone, farmers are advised to apply two sprays of imidacloprid 17.8 SL 0.0072% (4 ml/10 l) at 15 days interval starting from pests’ infestation is recommended.
(Imidacloprid 17.8 SL is registered under CIB approved list and 15 days waiting period required from last spray of this insecticide to picking)
Year:2017-2018

Experiential Learning Unit:
Department is offering hands on training exposure to final year students since 2016 as per recommendation in 4th deans committee.  Students opting for training in plant protection are given training in mass production of biocontrol agents, traps and bio-products employed in integrated pest management. Also, they trained for dissemination of this technology to farmers. The share was distributed among the students as per the activities and performance carried out by them during the ELP semester as per norms.
The Department of Entomology is imparting the teaching of under graduate and postgraduate students.
1.  269 M.Sc. (Agri.) and 48 Ph.D. students have completed their P.G. studies.
2.  22  M.Sc. (Agri.) and 10 Ph.D. students are on roll at present.

Extension Activities:
Scientists of the department are the active members in extension activities they disseminate the information through lectures/ seminars in farmers meeting/gathering organized by JAU, State Department and NGO's both on and off campus. Samples of infested/ damaged crops received personally from farmers as well as from other sources are immediately diagnosed for pest problem and appropriate remedies are advised. Various surveys in cropping seasons are carried out to make farmers aware of the situation currently present in their area. Scientists also visit the field where disease outbreak taking place during the growing season for immediate solutions whenever necessary.
