PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF 180 TOMATO CULTIVARS IN THE MONAGAS STATE OF VENEZUELA

Two unreplicated tests were established to evaluate the performance of 180 tomato cultivars. The first test included 95 cultivars .grown during the August-December 1981 season. Prior to the first harvest, all the entries were rated for the severity of Bacterial Spot Early Blight, Septoria Leaf Spot and Tobacco Mosaic Virus. In each of the six harvests, the fruits were separated in small and commercial and then counted and weighed. Yield of commercial fruits above 25 mt/ha were observed in the cultivars: Arizona, AT 70/24, CL-143-0-1-0-3, CL-1095, Campbell 1327, Campbell 34, Castlehv 1034, Castlex 489 G, Early Castlepeel, Harvester, Hessoline, Mexico, Nuova Super Roma, MH 134 E, Peto 98, Porfidio, Romanova, Rossol and Royal Chico. The second test was established from September 1981 to February 1982. It included 85 cultivars and only the yield data were recorded. Yields above 25 mt/ha were obtained with the cultivars Burgis, Castlex 489 C, Enterpriser, Floradade, Floradel, Hayslip, Piacenza, T2 IMP VF, Triumph, the lines XC-8104, CX-8105, E-6209, E 9209 from Campbell Institute, L-495 and L 550 from Louisiana State University and three crosses from Auburn University named GL-01, GL-03 and GL-04.
