1. To review current literature on the impact of crop nutrition on the occurrence and severity of plant diseases in protected edible crops and identify knowledge gaps;
2. To identify potential nutrient management strategies for use in hydroponic tomato which have a high probability of conferring improved disease control to long season tomato crops;
3. To propose R&D areas where there appears to be significant potential to develop crop nutrition management strategies to assist sustainable disease control in tomato.
