Oviposition and feeding of *Scrobipalpuloides absoluta* was studied on plants of seven different genotypes with varying 2-tridecanone (2-TD) foliage concentrations: *Lycopersicon esculentum* var. *glabratum* PI 1344417 (GLA), *L. esculentum* TSWV-547 (ESC), F1 (ESC × GLA), and four F_{2} genotypes—two with high 2-TD (HI1, HI2) and two with low foliage 2-TD concentrations (LO1, LO2). GLA, HI1, and HI2 showed 2-TD concentrations above 185 × 10^{–12} mol·cm^{2}, while ESC, LO1 and LO2 had 2-TD below 40 × 10^{–12} mol·cm^{2}; F1 had intermediary levels of 2-TD (83.5 × 10^{–12} mol 2-TD/cm^{2}). Ovipositioning was substantially higher in the low 2-TD than on either the high 2-TD genotypes or in the F_{1}, especially in the upper portion of the plants. Scores for leaf lesion type (LLT), overall plant damage (OPD) and percent leaflets attacked (PLA) were substantially higher for the low 2-TD than for either the high 2-TD genotypes or the F_{1}. The results indicate that 2-TD mediates resistance to *Scrobipalpuloides absoluta* in the interspecific cross, and strongly suggest that 2-TD acts as both an ovipositioning and feeding deterrent for this insect.

Thirty-three tomato (*Lycopersicon esculentum* Mill.) or *L. pimpinellifolium* (L.) Mill. accessions were inoculated with race T2 of *Xanthomonas campestris* pv. *vesicatoria* (Xcv) in a field experiment at Wooster, Ohio, in Summer 1995. These included accessions selected for race T2 resistance in greenhouse tests in Florida, and accessions from Hawaii, Brazil, and Bulgaria. One *L. esculentum* (PI 114490-1-1) and three *L. pimpinellifolium* (PI 340905-S1, PI 128216-T2, and LA 442-1-BK) accessions had no Xcv symptoms. This is the first report of resistance to Xcv race T2. Partial resistance was found in PI 271385, PI 79532-S1, PI 155372-S1, PI 195002, and PI 126428. Most of the 33 genotypes were tested for race T1 resistance in Presidente Prudente, Sao Paulo, Brazil in summer 1993. Hawaii 7983, PI 155372-S1, PI 114490, PI 114490-S1, and PI 262173 had greater resistance to T1 than the susceptible control `Solar Set'. Comparisons with earlier experiments in which accessions were inoculated with race T1 or T3 indicated that the most consistent source of resistance to all three races was PI 114490 or selections from it.

Thirty-two tomato (*Lycopersicon esculentum* Mill.) or *L. pimpinellifolium* (L.) Mill. accessions were inoculated with race T2 of *Xanthomonas campestris* pv. *vesicatoria* (Xcv) in a field experiment at Wooster, Ohio, in 1995. Plants from accessions which segregated for race T2 resistance in greenhouse tests were selected and these are designated by hyphenated extensions below. The eight most resistant accessions from 1995 and PI 262173 were retested in 1996. *Lycopersicon esculentum* accession PI 114490-1-1 had virtually no Xcv symptoms either year. *Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium* accessions LA 442-1-Bk and PI 128216-T2 expressed a high level of resistance in 1995, but only partial resistance in 1996. Accessions with partial resistance for both seasons were PI 79532-S1, PI 155372-S1, PI 126428, PI 271385, PI 195002, PI 262173, Hawaii 7998, and Hawaii 7983. PI 79532-S1 is a *L. pimpinellifolium* accession and the remaining seven are *L. esculentum.* Twenty accessions tested in 1995 for T2 plus 10 other accessions were also tested for race T1 resistance in Presidente Prudente, Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1993. Hawaii 7983, PI 155372-S1, PI 114490, PI 114490-S1, and PI 262173 had greater resistance to T1 than the susceptible control, `Solar Set'. Comparisons with earlier experiments, in which accessions were inoculated with race T1 or T3, indicated that the most consistent source of resistance to all three races was PI 114490 or selections derived from it.
