The biology of diamond back moth Plutella xylostella was evaluated on four crucifers as hosts. It was observed that in cauliflower and cabbage life cycle was shorter compared to radish and mustard; in cauliflower it was 35.60 days and in cabbage 41.20 days. Egg hatching was more with mustard (98%) followed by cauliflower (97.80%).
