Among the newer insecticides tested for their efficacy as seed dressers against sucking pests of okra viz., leafhoppers, aphids, whiteflies and thrips, results revealed that clothianidin 600 FS @ 9ml/kg seed was significantly superior in reducing population of sucking pests and was at par with imidacloprid 70 WS @ 10g/kg seed. This was followed by clothianidin 600 FS @ 7ml/kg seed and thiamethoxam 70 WS. Clothianidin 600 FS @ 9ml/kg seed recorded 90.79, 92.83, 88.1, 85.7 per cent reduction over untreated control against leafhoppers, aphids, whiteflies and thrips respectively and also recorded maximum marketable yield of okra fruits (58.9 q/ha) with 98.96 per cent increase over untreated control.
