Nurseries in line for Limex-invention against tomato virus
In an extensive article by AD Westland today (Friday the 15th of May 2020) you can read that Westland tomato growers are reporting en masse to Limex. Nine of the 21 Dutch tomato growers affected by the tomato virus ToBRFV (Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus) are located in Westland.
The publication in the regional edition of the Algemeen Dagblad is the result of our research into the removal of the ToBRFV from crates through the use of various washing methods. As there is no resistant tomato seed for the time being, alternative methods are being used by growers and suppliers to fight the destructive tomato virus. Our laboratory research has shown that extreme hygiene measures, such as washing seed trays and harvest crates, offer a solution to drive out the virus.
