The study was carried out to screen okra cultivars against okra leafhoppers, Amrasca biguttula (Ishida) during Karif 2018 at AHRS, Bhavikere, UAHS, and Shivamogga Karnataka. Fourteen okra genotypes viz., Arka Anamika, Pusa A-4, Phule utkharsh, Kasha kranti, Kashi satdhari, Avishkar, Ankur-40, Apsara, Amar tulsi, Usha, Megha, Supreme, Vnr-999 and Dhenu were raised in randomized block design with three replications to know their resistance against A. biguttula. Among these fourteen cultivars Arka Anamika and pusa A-4 recorded as highly resistant with lowest leafhopper population. Cultivars Phule utkharsh, Kashi kranti, Kashi satdhari, Avishkar, Apsara, Ankur-40 were found resistant, whereas Usha, Megha and Amar tulsi were identified as susceptible cultivars. In contrast to this, Dhenu, Vnr-999 and Supreme were recorded as highly susceptible cultivars with higher leadfhopper population.
