NOTES ON DISEASES OF TOMATOES TJITH SUGGESTIONS ON THEIR CONTROL

R. S. Cox and N. C. Hayslip
Everglades Experiment Station and
Indian River Field Laboratory

It is established that diseases provide one of the most serious ob-
stacles in the production of tomatoes in south Florida. Also, it appears that
as controls for the common diseases are worked out formerly minor diseases come
to the forefront in respect to importance. The purpose of this report is to
summarize briefly what is known about the diseases of tomatoes and their control,
and to bring to your attention the result of one year's observations and experi-
mentation on the control of one disease in particular Botrytis Blight. Thus,
it is emphasized that the information we have on control of this disease is pre-
liminary in nature, and should not be considered as final recommendations. It
is presented with the sole purpose of keeping you, the Grower, up-to-date on
our latest findings.
