Abstract:
Four new clones (KH01, KH02, KH03 and KH04) obtained from genetic crossing between M. glaziovii (a wild variety) and Kanigbeli (a local cassava cultivar cultivated in Togo were planted in the field and were characterized morphologically on the basis of their behaviour vis-à-vis of Begomovirus infections and their agronomic performances. The results from the behavioural evaluation of the four selected clones (KH01, KH02, KH03 and KH04) vis-à-vis of Begomovirus infections and their agronomic performances, after three generations of genetic crossing, reveal that the selected clones present the best viral tolerance (mark 2). And concerning their agronomic performances, the selected clones have a good harvest index and a good effectiveness of production.
