Plants are the primary producers on which all the living organisms depends. Most important vegetable is Brassica Oleracea (Cauliflower), not only eaten by the people of Faisalabad, Pakistan but also famous in neighboring countries including India and Bangladesh. When a pest attacks on cauliflower crop, it damages plant leaves that results in decreases rate of photosynthesis hence results in low yield of crop. Major pest of cauliflower are Pieris brassicae (American Sundi). Pieris brassicae (American Sundi) damages the leaves and fruit of Brassica Oleracea (Cauliflower) by boring holes. Total estimate damage on crop production must be studied through survival study.
