Begomoviruses are phytovirus spread by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci and are serious threat to vegetable crops around the world, especially in the tropics. These micro-viruses affect tomato crops in particular in Guadeloupe and Martinique. Management of the diseases is currently based on intensive chemical control and cultural practices suited to large-scale production. This is not suitable for the West Indian context of small open fields. Integrated protection based on understanding of epidemics could make it possible to identify strategies suited to the socio-agronomic context (résumé d'auteur)
