Cruciferous crops are rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, fibre, antioxidants, and phytochemicals which help in preventing cancer and heart diseases. These crops are grown in well drained loamy soil with adequate organic matter (> 2.0%). There are many constraints for cultivation of Cruciferous crops but insect-pests play major role for reduction in yield and quality of crop. Therefore, some facts about maintain ace of crop are given in this editorial.
Cruciferous crops include cabbage, broccoli cauliflower, brussels sprouts, chinese cabbage, and kohlrabi. These vegetable crops well grown at mild temperature (16- 20oC). All these crops lose quality when temperatures exceed 27 oC. These climatic conditions are very convenient for development of insect-pests infestation on Cruciferous crops. Among these pests the butterflies are more serious those cause in huge monetary loss to Cruciferous crops. Therefore, the description of major butterflies is given in this editorial.
