Furthermore, the difficulty in recognizing the disease in tomato plants growing under stressed conditions makes its detection difficult. Incipient or mild symptoms on the foliage may easily be overlooked as an injury caused by excess fertilization or by applied pesticides. Delay in detection of bacterial canker where regular handling of the plants in cultural operations is required (such as pruning, emasculation, pollination), often results in extensive and rapid spread of the disease. In this presentation we will discuss symptoms to look for when recognizing the disease and how to manage the disease once it has been identified to be present in the field or in the greenhouse.
