A field experiment was conducted to screen out possible positive effects of plant extracts on controlling and management of White backed plant hopper S. Furcifera in cultivated field. This research study was primarily aimed to determine and explore biological management of S. Furcifera. In this study, plant extracts of different nature were used. The study revealed that each kind of plant extracts had significant effects on controlling of population of White backed plant hopper with varying differences. Comparatively, T13- Buprofezin 15% +Acephate 35% WP (1.5g/L) showed most significantly controlled population of S. Furcifera that roughly reduced by 85% in all years of experiment. Moreover, in plots treated with Jimsonweed extract (7.5%) also controlled around 50% population followed by Neem Seed Kernel Extract (NSKE) (7.5%) and Seed Kernel Extract (NSKE) (5.0%), where reduction% was recorded by 46% and 45% respectively. However, minimum reduction% was recorded in Euclyptus leaf extract (5.0%) and Custard apple leaf extract (5.0%) that reduced by 18% and 20% respectively. The highest yield production was also achieved in plot where- Buprofezin 15% +Acephate 35% WP (1.5g/L) was used. So, application of plant extracts against S. Furcifera can give provide better way in controlling population below injury level.
