Author(s): Tadele Shiberu, Emana Getu
Abstract: An evaluation of fresh extracts from three locally available and two commercial pesticidal plants and its combinations in Ethiopia was carried out against important tomato leaf miner, Liriomyza species in the glasshouse in order to assess their potency for pesticidal application. Significant differences (P<0.001) were observed with respect to efficacy percent and total yield of tomato fruits per plant. At 7th day after treatment application Prosuler oxymetrin (Levo 2.4 SLTM) and Azadirachta indica had the highest efficacy percentage and no significance differences from the standard check. It was concluded that Prosuler oxymetrin (Levo 2.4 SLTM), Emamectin benzoate (Prove 1.9 E. CTM) and Azadirachta indica could be used as a management measure against Liriomyza species.
