Tomato Commodity Survey 2013
Zuefle, Marion; Seaman, Abby
A CAPS (Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey) of tomatoes was conducted for one exotic insect pest and three exotic tomato diseases as well as one disease known to occur in NY. A total of 11 farms in 11 counties were surveyed bi-weekly for both the insect and disease pests. Suspect samples were sent in to either Cornell’s Insect Diagnostic Lab or Cornell’s Plant Disease Diagnostic Clinic. Only bacterial canker, known to occur in NY, was discovered. This was found in 5 of the 11 sites.
