ABSTRACT

The effects of some cultural practices and some plant extracts on wilt disease of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) in Owerri, were studied. The experiments were conducted in 2010, 2011 and 2015 at the Teaching and Research Farm and in the Crop Science and Technology Laboratory of the School of Agriculture and Agricultural Technology, Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria. The investigation consisted of three (3) different experiments and each repeated two times. Experiment one dealt on the effects of some mulching materials and some tomato cultivars on wilt disease of tomato. The design was a 3x4 factorial in randomized complete block design (RCBD) in four (4) replications. Experiment two (2) dealt on the effects of some plant extracts and tomato cultivars on the wilt disease of tomato. The design was a 3x4 factorial in RCBD with three (3) replications. Experiment three (3) studied the effects of plant spacing/ density and inter- cropping on wilt disease of tomato. The design used was a 4x4 factorial in RCBD with 4 replications. Data on growth, flowering, yield, disease incidence and severity on tomato were collected and statistically analysed using Genstat Version 4 analytical software, while the means were separated for difference using Fisher’s Least Significant Difference protocol. Percentage wilt disease incidence was significantly (P
