Abstract. Climate change would have an impact on vegetable crops, especially lettuce (Lactuca sativa L) which is consumed generally raw with salad. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of Jatropha curcas L. on the survival and growth of Lactuca sativa L. plants. Only one factor, Jatropha curcas L. cuttings, was studied. The results showed a significant effect of the factor on the survival rate (p <0.5). The test named Student revealed that the plots associated with Jatropha was recorded a better survival rate (66.670%) than that of the control plots (46.800%). However, JCL did not improve leaf growth (length and width). The measured characteristics of JCL, particularly the height and the number of leaves, recorded low values attesting to a less efficient agronomic dynamic. These results suggest that the Jatropha-Lactuca combination has raised survival rates and would have increased lettuce growth if JCL were well developed.
