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.
