Md. Liakot Ali, Md. Asad-ud-doullah, Bimal Kumar Pramanik and M. Ashrafuzzaman


Soil treatment with Furadan at the rate of 33.5 kg ha-1, seedling treatments with skimmed milk (1:10 dilution of powder), foliar application of kitchen ash (sufficient to cover the foliage), Malathion and Metasystox at the rate of 0.02% and 0.03% respectively when applied in Tomato cv. Ruma VF, significantly reduced the insect vector population causing leaf curl disease. Malathion gave the best performance among the treatments in controlling disease incidence and severity. Metasystox and Furadan followed in order. The skimmed milk and kitchen ash also were effective.
