AbstractThe results of the recent study showed no signification difference in general mean of leaf attack by T. absoluta according to kind of chemical treatment in comparison with control , although that the treated tomatoes varieties by leaf fertilizer exhibit the highest general mean leaf attack reached 35.49% and the highest leaf attack was found on Speedy variety in comparison with 33.31 and 30.99 % for Rocky and G.S variety respectively. The highest general mean leaf attack by T. absoluta was registered during September and reached 60.3 %. For the tomato worm H. armigera the results showed no significant difference also , in general mean of leaf attack between tomato varieties in treatments and control , and the highest general mean of attack reached 88.92 % in varieties treated by growth regulator in comparison with control 80.33 %. The G.S. variety was most preferred and got the highest attack found in September and reached 90.14 %. The percentage of leaf attack by both worms kinds was decreased.
