Three-year investigations (2009 – 2011) were conducted with four oriental tobacco varieties, including the Yaka variety YK-7/4 as a check and three varieties of Basmak tobacco - MK-1, MB-2 and MB-3. The investigated varieties are characterized by a short growing season. This characteristic is in good correlation with climate changes in recent years and it allows timely harvesting and curing of tobacco. In the world and in our country, one of the priority issues for obtaining higher yields is to produce healthy tobacco. The most common field diseases in our country аre Tobacco mosaic virus Allard (TMV), Potato virus Y (PVY) and fungal disease Phytophthora parasitica var. nicotianae (black shank). Taking into account that tobacco diseases cause major economic damage to tobacco, analyses were made on health status of the tested varieties during the three years of investigation. The obtained results show higher resistance of the varieties MK-1 and MB-2 to Tobacco mosaic virus Allard (TMV), MK-1 and MB-3 to Potato virus Y (PVY) and MB-2 and MB-3 to Phytophthora parasitica var. nicotianae. These results can contribute to the variety selection in breeding this type of tobacco.
