Abstract:

Tomato is a widely produced and widely consumed crop in Côte d’Ivoire. However, its production is harmed by many pests such as fungal diseases, bacterial diseases, viral diseases and pests including root-knot nematodes. In order to identify the best varieties against this pest, a study of ten tomato varieties was conducted in the Yamoussoukro region of central Côte d'Ivoire. The device adopted for the test, was complete Fischer blocks in randomization. Observations included tomato development and production parameters, earliness, root-knot nematode population, and yield components. The results of this study showed that of the ten varieties tested, two varieties are distinguished by their yield and their tolerance to root-knot nematodes. These are the F1 Mongal varieties (3437.5 kg.ha-1, 4438.75 kg.ha-1) and F1 Cobra 26 (2412.5 kg.ha-1, 2973 kg.ha-1). These results made it possible to select these two varieties for their tolerance to root-knot nematodes and for their productivity. F1 Mongal and F1 Cobra 26 varieties may be recommended for growers in areas with root-knot nematodes.
