Diseases and pests
Diseases of tomatoes can destroy the entire crop, so the fight against diseases must be started even before the seedlings are planted. Consider the most common of them for greenhouse tomatoes, which include the "Riddle of Nature".
Phytophthora - at the beginning of the disease, the leaves turn brown, then the fruits turn brown. The disease is caused by a large temperature drop and excessive humidity. They help to cope with the disease in the early stages of spraying with copper-containing preparations.
Top rot of tomatoes... It is characterized by depressed spots on green fruits. Excess nitrogen, lack of calcium or lack of moisture are the main reasons for the appearance. Regular watering and treatment with nitrate solution helps to cope with the disease.
For leaf mold the main symptom is the appearance of brown-brown spots, which are covered with a gray coating. The use of bacterial preparations, treatment of the plant with a solution of copper oxychloride will help to cope with the disease.
Tomato mosaic - a very unpleasant disease. Distinctive features of the mosaic are colored spots that appear first on the leaves, and then on the fruits. As a preventive measure, the seeds are washed in a 1% solution of potassium permanganate. Affected plants are burned.
Cracking of the fruit is another disease. But it is not caused by fungi or viruses, but by abundant watering in drought. When a large amount of water immediately enters the stem, and then into the fruit itself, then its delicate skin does not withstand the pressure and cracks. It is not difficult to cope with diseases, the most important thing is to notice them in time and correctly diagnose them.
