Calcium (Ca) is an important nutrient element, which can affect apple quality after harvest. Ca deficiency expresses itself in the form of cork spot, which develop primarily during the early part of the growing season, bitter pit, which develops during the latter part of the growing season, and senescent breakdown, which forms during and after storage.

The ability to track produce is critical in the event of a food recall. If food from your farm is suspected to be contaminated or has made someone sick, an efficient tracking system can aid in preventing additional cases of foodborne illness and halting an outbreak. It can also help you re-call product if the quality is later determined to not meet your standards.

The development of the first edition of this manual was supported, in part, by USAID funds via USDA grant number 58319R-3-004, the National Agricultural Research Project, Ministry of Agriculture, Egypt. The first edition, published in June 1993, second edition (January 1994) and third editions (March 1995) have been much in demand and encouraged our efforts to update the manual and produce a fourth edition.

Pasture and right-of-way herbicides have the potential to move off target and can severely impact tomato production. While these herbicides are valuable tools for weed management, off-target damage to tomato often results in reduced productivity for growers and bad publicity for the industry. Herbicide damage can lead to reduced yields and possible crop rejection.

University of California

Because this disease is potentially devastating for tomato production in California, it is critical to limit its spread.
