Feeling yellow? You may want to check out the Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus Field Screening Pop-In Field Day. Since 2009, the college has been screening new varieties of tomatoes for possible resistance to the Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV), conducting periodic field days to showcase different commercially available varieties to interested stakeholders. Growers are able to evaluate the horticultural characteristics of tolerant varieties, helping them to make informed decisions before ordering and planting seeds. This process has helped producers minimize risk and unnecessary crop losses. A new field day of resistant varieties will be held on Saturday, November 24, at the Waimanalo Research Station to go over the field screenings that have been conducted in 2018 in the certified organic and GoFarm field plots. Participants will then have an opportunity to walk through the field to see some of the varieties currently being evaluated at the Station. Interested participants are encouraged to pop in from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. Past TYLCV publications from CTAHR include an overview of the diseasea comparison of resistant varieties; two discussions of preliminary screening for resistance, here and here; an explanation of how to use reflective mulch to boost productivity in tomato growing; and a discussion of the use of resistant varieties in combination with screenhouse systems
