Tomato is an important vegetable grown all over the world because
of its dietary, nutritional and medicinal values. It is damaged by
a variety of insect pests especially tomato aphids and tomato fruif
borer which are considered as limiting factor in the production of
this vegetable. The work presented in the book was focused on the
seasonal occurrence of aphid and tomato fruit borer on different
cultivar of tomato and to find out the host plant resistance in
relation to abiotic factors such as maximum temperature, minimum
temperature, relative humidity and rainfall on different cultivars
of tomato viz., Raja, Nagra-1077, Red hero hybrid and Rao phego
against tomato aphids and tomato fruit borer.
