Abstract:

A study was conducted to find out the occurrence and distribution of tomato leaf curl virus disease in Marathwada region of Maharashtra state. For this purpose a roving survey in the month of September- October in Rabi season and in the month of March- April for Summer season 2017-2018 was conducted. The disease was found to vary from location to location and cultivar to cultivar. The average disease incidence was recorded in tomato growing area of Aurangabad, Jalna, Parbhani, Beed, Hingoli, Latur and Osmanabad district of Marathwada region. The disease incidence was found to be maximum i.e. 46.54 per cent in Summer grown tomato crop, as compared to that of Rabi crop during Summer 2018-19 season. The overall average leaf curl incidence during Rabi 2017-18 was 38.27 per cent. Erratic rainfall, dry spells and flared population of whitefly vectors were found responsible for tomato leaf curl virus disease incidence. However, tomato cultivars / varieties, grown during Rabi season were found to be less affected by leaf curl virus disease as compared to that grown during Summer season.
