Perennial Weed Management Discussed in Latest 'Focus on Tomato' Webcast

Perennial weed infestations in tomato crops can have many negative effects on crops, like lower  yields, added costs from losses due to insects and diseases, and reduced-quality products.

This talk particularly covers…

- Site preparation
- Elimination of perennial weeds before tomato crop planting
- Methods to manage perennial weeds in the tomato crop
- Perennial weeds management in rotation crops, especially agronomic crops
