Tomato leaf mould (Passalora fulva) can be one of the most destructive foliar diseases of tomato when the crop is grown under humid conditions.

 

It has recently reappeared in some UK crops, and has persisted overwinter on a few nurseries between one crop and the next.

 

Prevention of the disease by managing the glasshouse environment is much easier than managing the disease.

 

This best practice guide provides information on disease symptoms and epidemiology, as well as information on how to manage the disease using cultural and chemical measures, effective crop husbandry, varietal resistance and plant protection products.
