Complete control of this common physiological disorder of tomatoes cannot as yet be achieved, but a number of measures can be employed to reduce its incidence.
DURING the summer months many tomato specimens are received showing symptoms of blossom-end rot.
Many growers attribute this trouble to parasitic organisms and are anxious to prevent it spreading to the rest of their crop.
However as blossom-end rot is not a parasitic disease, it cannot be controlled by fungicidal or bactericidal sprays.
