Tomatoes بادانجان رومی

Problems and Opportunities

  • Priority problems for Afghanistan tomatoes include poor plant staking practices, poor flood irrigation, poor seed quality and genetic purity of varieties, and pests and diseases.
  • Priority opportunities include: field and crop rotation, removal of infected residues, use of resistant varieties (consider that Roma varieties are culturally preferred), and improved irrigation practices to avoid excess soil moisture)
  • These draft priority problems are based on feedback from Alan Walters (SIU) and Tom Brown.
