Possibilities for control of tomato leaf miner Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) by application of insecticides in tomato greenhouse growing
V. Yankova, D. Ganeva
Abstract: Tomato leaf miner Tuta absoluta (Meyrick 1917) is one of dangerous pests in greenhouse tomato production. Studies with tomato for mid-early production in unheated greenhouses were conducted in the Maritsa Vegetable Crops research Institute - Plovdiv during the period 2010-2011. Seven products for plant protection were applied in the biological study of tomato as the insecticides Alverde 20 ml/da, Confidor Energy OD 0.08 % and Avant 15 SC 20 ml/da are with high effectiveness (over 75%) against first-second instars of larvae of tomato leaf miner. These products could be included in the plant protection systems for pest control in tomato growing in cultivation facilities.
