The present investigation was carried out during the year 2016-17 in Bulandshahr district of Western Uttar Pradesh to assess the knowledge level of brinjal growers regarding application of bio-pesticides in brinjal production. Bulandshahr district comprise of 16 blocks in which two blocks namely Lakhoti and Jahangirabad were purposively selected. Four villages namely Dhakka, Dhakroli from lakhoti block and Shekhpur, Pasoli selected from Jahangirabad block.

The study depicted that most of the brinjal growers of selected areas were not having proper knowledge about importance of Bio-pesticides in brinjal production. They were medium level of knowledge to summer deep ploughing while they were have low level of  knowledge about importance and practices related to soil treatment, seed treatment, seedling treatment and foliage application of Bio-pesticides in brinjal cultivation for measurement of fruit & shoot borer, jassid & aphids and whitefly. So, it is an argent need of skill oriented training to brinjal growers regarding importance and its application for higher and safer brinjal production.
