Video presentation:

Tomato diseases favoured by high tunnel greenhouses

This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the Northern U.S. understand how high tunnels favour certain tomato diseases, and then successfully manage these diseases. Brown Leaf Mold, Tobacco Mosaic Virus and Fusarium Wilt of tomatoes are used as examples of how the unique environment of a high tunnel creates management challenges. Varietal resistance, grafting, fungicide applications and rotations are considered, concluding with the intersection of best management practices across diseases. Participants will learn what and what not to do to grow a healthy tomato crop in a high tunnel.
