Abstract

BACTERIAL CANKER of tomatoes causes its greatest damage in crops grown in the spring and autumn months in Western Australia. It is particularly damaging when the weather is unusually stormy and cool.

Bactericidal sprays applied immediately after pruning or after severe storms should reduce the spread of tomato bacterial canker—report of an experiment.
