Diseases and pests
Cherry yellow tomatoes often suffer from cladosporia, fusarium and tobacco mosaic virus... Cladosporium is especially common in those plants that are grown in greenhouses. This ailment is characterized by the formation of yellow spots on the outside of the leaves and fungal plaque on the inside. You can defeat this disease by providing a 60% humidity level in the greenhouse and an air temperature of 25-30 degrees Celsius.
Under such conditions, the infected leaves will die, and the new ones will not become infected. Dead leaves must be carefully removed by first placing each leaf in a plastic bag. This will prevent cladosporium spores from spraying onto healthy leaves. The main signs of fusarium are the acquisition of yellow or pale green leaves of tomatoes, lightening of the veins, as well as deformation of the leaf roots, after which they curl and fall off.
It is almost impossible to get rid of fusarium, so diseased plants should be dug up along with the roots and burned. To prevent this dangerous disease, it is necessary to sow seeds in well-heated soil, and when planting seedlings, check that they are not infected. After the rain, the garden must be sprayed with solutions of special biological preparations.
The tobacco mosaic virus is characterized by the appearance of yellow specks on the leaves, which later turn into a light green or dark green mosaic. The leaves are deformed, and the fruits ripen unevenly and become smaller. To prevent this disease, it is necessary to disinfect seedlings, seedling boxes and garden tools with a 5% solution of potassium permanganate. If you want to protect your garden from pests, treat it with insecticidal preparations in time..
When you have harvested the entire tomato crop, the plant residues should be collected and burned, not thrown into the compost heap. This will help prevent the transfer of various diseases and pests.
