Summary

This experiment was conducted in Katabi Sub-county in Wakiso District. The study evaluated efficacy of selected biorational combinations in the management of tomato blight. These biorationals were picked from the locally used plant materials used as natural pesticides and fungicides. They included Carica papaya, Phytolacca dodecandra, Jatropha curcas, Capsella Bursa-pastoris and. Tephrosia vogelli.
The major objective was to evaluate efficacy of Carica papaya, Phytolacca dodecandra, Jatropha curcas, Capsella Bursa-pastoris and. Tephrosia vogelli.against tomato blight.
This research was guided by three major objectives that is; to determine the biorational combinations that reduces tomato bright to levels below economic injury thresholds, to establish the optimum concentration of biorationals used in controlling tomato blight and to identify the ecological conditions that influence the effectiveness of biorationals when managing tomato blight.
This research used a completely randomized research design in which three treatments were made at varying biorational concentrations (25%, 50%, and 75%). Data was collected from all treatments and efficacies for each treatment evaluated. At the end it was established that treatments of Carica papaya with Phytolacca dodecandra were more effective in managing tomato blight below economic injury thresholds. This research recommended that Carica papaya with Phytolacca dodecandra should be used by farmers in the management of tomato blight.

Summary translation

Este experimento se llevó a cabo en el sub-condado de Katabi en el distrito de Wakiso. El estudio evaluó la eficacia de las combinaciones bioracionales seleccionadas en el manejo de la plaga del tomate. Estos bioracionales se tomaron de los materiales vegetales usados ​​localmente como pesticidas y fungicidas naturales. Incluyeron Carica papaya, Phytolacca dodecandra, Jatropha curcas, Capsella Bursa-pastoris y. Tephrosia vogelli.
El objetivo principal fue evaluar la eficacia de Carica papaya, Phytolacca dodecandra, Jatropha curcas, Capsella Bursa-pastoris y. Tephrosia vogelli.contra la plaga del tomate.
Esta investigación fue guiada por tres objetivos principales que es; determinar las combinaciones biorracionales que reducen el brillo del tomate a niveles inferiores a los umbrales de daño económico, establecer la concentración óptima de biorracionales utilizados para controlar la plaga del tomate e identificar las condiciones ecológicas que influyen en la efectividad de los biorracionales cuando se maneja la plaga del tomate.
Esta investigación usó un diseño de investigación completamente aleatorizado en el que se realizaron tres tratamientos con concentraciones bioracionales variables (25%, 50% y 75%). Se recogieron datos de todos los tratamientos y eficacias para cada tratamiento evaluado. Al final se estableció que los tratamientos de Carica papaya con Phytolacca dodecandra fueron más efectivos en la gestión del tizón del tomate por debajo de los umbrales de daño económico. Esta investigación recomendó que Carica papaya con Phytolacca dodecandra sea utilizada por los agricultores en el manejo del tizón del tomate.
