Hopper is a serious pest of mango and in cases of severe infestation cause failure of good crop. Large number of nymphs and adults puncture and suck the sap of tender parts of panicles, inflorescence, leaves and fruit. It results into weakening of inflorescence and affects fruit set and their drop. They also damage the crop by excreting sweet sticky substances which facilitates the development of sooty mold, a fungus, which affects photosynthesis activity of leaf. Based on the

study farmers are advised to take up timely management with recommended practices to reduce the loss.
