Identification and Selection of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum mill) Cultivars Tolerant of the Virosis Complex Transmitted by Bemisia tabaci (genn.) (Aleyrodidae) in Central America

Tomato cultivation has great relevance in Central America, it is planted by some 53,000 small (0.5 ha) and medium (up to 5 ha) scale producers on about 12,000 ha. They achieve low yields that oscillate between 9 and 27 t / ha. The high incidence of Begomoviruses, transmitted by the whitefly (Bemicia tabaci) negatively affects fruit yields and quality, which is presumed to be linked to the limited ...
