Abstract
The study was conducted at the farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka during the period from April to December 2012 to determine the incidence of spider mites on different variety of roses. The experiment included twelve varieties of roses viz. Wild rose, Crazy love bi-color, Yellow star, Missing love, Compassion, Charming lady, Dream bangle, Sleepy moon, Sweet doll, Moon light, Sweet love and Mini moni. Each variety represents as one treatment. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Incidence of spider mites showed significant variation due to the effect of varieties. Among the varieties, Sweet Love was tolerant of pests and the lowest number of spider mites were recorded at vegetative and flowering stages. Varieties of rose significantly influenced the incidence of pests as well as growth characteristics of rose indicating lowest number of infested leaves per plant, lowest number of infested branch per plant and lowest number of infested flower per plant on Sweet Love variety. Sweet Love variety showed tolerant to spider mites of rose and gave better yield among the all varietal treatments while sweet doll variety graded as susceptible mites due to the lowest performance regarding pest incidence and infestation.
