Effect of different intercropping systems on tomato infestation with major insect pests; Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), Myzus persicae Sulzer (Homoptera: Aphididae) and Phthorimaea operculella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)


, : Effect of different intercropping systems on tomato infestation with major insect pests; Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), Myzus persicae Sulzer (Homoptera: Aphididae) and Phthorimaea operculella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae). Bulletin of Faculty of Agriculture, University of Cairo 41(3, Suppl. 1): 885-900

Field-plot studies were carried out in Giza, Egypt, during 1988-90 to determine the effect of intercropping tomato with either onion or garlic on the level of infestation with Bemisia tabaci, Myzus persicae and Phthorimaea operculella. The numbers of adults of B. tabaci on tomato grown alone were higher than on either of the intercropping systems: infestation on tomato was reduced by 62-66% when grown with onion and by 69-70% when grown with garlic.
