Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum Mill.) is the most popular vegetable world-wide. It is used as a fresh vegetable and also can be processed and canned in the form of paste, juice, sauce, powder or as a whole. The ripe fruits are good source of vitamin A, B and C which add a wide range of colour and flavour to the food. Recently, it started gaining more medicinal value because of the antioxidant property of ascorbic acid and lycopene content. The tomato is known to be affected by different diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, viruses and nematodes. Among different diseases affecting tomato, root-knot and wilt complex caused by Meloidogyne incognita and Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici was observed in severe form. A survey was conducted in four districts of North Eastern Karnataka. The survey results revealed that disease incidence was noticed throughout the North Eastern Karnataka viz., Raichur, Yadagir, Kalaburgi and Koppal districts wherever tomato was grown. In tomato, wilt was noticed in all locations surveyed with a range of 8.33 to 38.66 per cent. Maximum wilt incidence was observed in Kalaburgi district (26.21%) and least incidence was in Raichur district (21.25%).
