 [Objectives]  To explore the mechanisms underlying the resistance of tobacco to Myzus persicae (Sulzer), provide a theoretical basis for breeding resistant tobacco varieties and developing comprehensive prevention and control methods for M. persicae. [Methods]  We quantified the developmental duration, fecundity and survival rates of M. persicae on 20 tobacco varieties with a new leaf-disc assay, and measured the soluble protein, pH, chlorophyll content and leaf trichome density of fresh leaves of each variety. [Results]  Adult longevity, fecundity, duration of the nymph period, and survival, were significantly different on different tobacco varieties. Among the varieties examined, Minyan38, Guiyan3 and Yunyan97 had weak resistance, but Minyan57, Minyan7 and Zhongyan102were highly resistant. There was no obvious difference in the pH of fresh leaves of the different varieties, but there were highly significant, positive, correlations between trichome density, soluble protein content, chlorophyll a and chlorophyll pigment content of each tobacco variety and the number of M. persicae adults found on plants of each variety. M. persicae preferred varieties with high trichome density, and high soluble protein and chlorophyll content. [Conclusion]  Of the 20 tobacco varieties tested, Minyan57, Minyan7 and Zhongyan102 were the most highly resistant to M. persicae. Tobacco varieties with low trichome density, and low soluble protein and chlorophyll content, were more resistant to M. persicae.
