Combating Tuta absoluta(Meyrick), an invasive pest of key Solanaceous vegetables for food and nutritional security

  • Agriculture is a vital tool for sustainable development in Africa. Specifically, horticultural sub-sector generates more jobs, with vegetable production providing market opportunities for smallholder growers. Tomato besides being both a subsistence and cash crop, is highly nutritious and provide good amounts of minerals, antioxidants and vitamins. Despite the socio-economic importance of this crop, it is constrained by numerous biotic and abiotic factors, ranking high among the former are arthropod pests, a problem that was further compounded by the recent invasion by Tuta absoluta. The pest causes yield losses of up-to 100% jeopardizing livelihoods of millions of growers. Furthermore, the pest has expanded its host range to some indigenous Solanaceous vegetables thus intensifying the problem in Africa.
  • The project is designed to address constraints due to T. absoluta through validation of EPF-based biopesticides, screening of endophytes and implementation of applications of proven IPM strategies to suppress the pest.
  • The PhD position is based at icipe’s Duduville Campus Nairobi, Kenya.
