Tomato Harvest has Begun!

The last week of August saw the start of the 2014 tomato harvest. The cooler, damp conditions the last month were favourable for the spread of bacterial disease which had weakened the vines in some fields across the AGRIS trading area. Harvest results will tell how bacteria affected the yield. The conditions also kept tomatoes under threat of late blight as well and farmers took proactive measures and to date it remains fairly low in Essex and Chatham-Kent.
