Development of environmentally friendly management methods for red spider mites in small-holder tomato production systems in Eastern and Southern Africa (Phase II)


Tomatoes are one of the most important vegetables in Eastern and Southern Africa whereas in smallholder production system yields are below the crop‘s potential due to low quality seeds, nonavailability of inputs, sub-optimal crop husbandry and a large number of pests and diseases. Red spider mites (Tetranychus evansi - RSM) are one of the most serious dry season pests in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique. They are of less importance in eastern Africa but can cause serious yield losses in this region as well. Common farmer‘s control practices involve the application of highly toxic acaricides as a pesticide leading to the contamination of the product, the producer, and the environment.
