The present study on the varietal resistance of okra against Earias spp were carried out at the experimental farm, Sindh Agriculture University, TandoJam, for two years (1997 and 1998). For recording pest infestation, five plants per treatment were thoroughly observed from one month after sowing and continued till harvesting. Healthy and infested fruits were noted at weekly intervals. Okra varieties tested in the present study were: Jalandri, Green polo, Parbhani karanti, Pusa sawani, Faisalabad-M-1 and Desi. The results revealed that infestation varied significantly in different varieties of okra. The okra varieties Green polo was found the least susceptible and the Desi variety was the most susceptible with the minimum and maximum percent infestation of 9.06 and 18.92, respectively.
