|Abstract||We studied the effect of UV-blocked greenhouses made from netting and plastics on the movement and pest status of three important pest of tomatoes: whitefly (Bemisia tabaci), thrips (Ceratothripoides claratris), and aphid (Aphis gossypii). Under UV-blocked greenhouses, fewer whiteflies, aphids, and thrips entered the greenhouse compared with the ones having more UV intensity. Similarly, significantly fewer alate aphids and adult B. tabaci/leaf were counted in greenhouses with low UV intensity. Although thrips were the most abundant pest, they also were significantly less abundant in greenhouses with lower UV intensity. Consequently, significantly lower levels of leaf infestation were recorded under these greenhouse conditions. During open gates experiments, virus infection levels reached 96–100% under UV nonblocking greenhouses compared with 6–10% infection levels in greenhouses where UV irradiation was blocked. In addition, the appearance of virus symptoms was considerably delayed under greenhouses made from the UV-blocking roof material, although the majority of the plants tested positive for the tospovirus, capsicum chlorosis virus (CaCV; AIT isolate). The results are discussed in context of improved management of sucking insect pests of tomatoes in the humid tropics.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
