Highlights High tomato yields in double recirculating aquaponic systems (DRAPS) are possible.
Fish waste water does not affect plant production negatively. Continuous nutrient analysis of fish waste water is necessary for high productivity. High amounts of fresh water can be saved by the new aquaponic system. DRAPS can be used for fertilizer savings and therefore for environmental relief. Abstract Aquaponics for intensive crop production is a highly complex system in which three different biological systems (fish, plants, and nitrifying bacteria) with different requirements must be merged. AFRICAN JOURNAL OF MICROBIOLOGY RESEARCH - FEV 2015 - Application of arbuscular mycorrhiza for managing root-knot disease in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) under glass-house conditions in Pantnagar, India. Root-knot disease caused by Meloidogyne spp. poses a worldwide threat to agriculture as well as environment due to excess use of chemical nematicides for its management.
Recently, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) have achieved importance as biocontrol agent for the managements of root-knot disease. In this aspect, the present study was focused on the effect of AMF (Glomus intraradices) against root-knot disease of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) caused by Meloidogyne incognita. Observations of G. intraradices against M. incognita were taken at 10, 20 and 30 days after M. incognita second stage juveniles (J2) inoculation on tomato roots, which were pre-colonized by G. intraradices. A significant effect was observed on plant growth (length and biomass) and nematode induced (root galls, egg masses, egg and adult females) parameters in nematode inoculated G. intraradices colonized plants as compared to non-colonized plants at all the three harvesting periods.

The information provision and promotion measures governed by Regulation (EC) No3/2008(1) (replaced as from 1st December 2015 by Regulation (EU) No1144/2014(2)) aims at raising the profile of European agricultural products both inside and outside the Union, with a special focus on those markets in third countries that have the highest growth potential.
As in the current policy, also in the newly reformed policy the specificities of the outermost regions' agricultural sector are taken into account. Indeed, Regulation (EU) No 1144/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council identifies the logo for quality agricultural products specific to the outermost regions of the Union as one of the eligible schemes and outlines that the outermost regions should be taken into account when designing the annual work programme. To note, that in this context, the outermost regions' logo can be illustrated by one or more products issued from this scheme, without excluding a priori certain products. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-014463-15 Tomato imports. The entry price system for fruit and vegetables was modified during the most recent reforms to the agricultural sector to stop irregularities detected up to that point.
However, the Commission subsequently decided to alter, as from the 2014/2015 marketing year, how the overall value of tomato imports from the main importing countries is calculated so that all varieties — including ‘cherry’ tomatoes and not just ‘round’ tomatoes — are included in the total figure. This change relaxes protection at the border, making it a retrograde step after the progress achieved in the reform, and makes it impossible to judge the real state of the market. Now the Commission is planning to introduce a weekly calculation of this overall import value, instead of a daily one, which will render the system less efficient.
What is the Commission’s opinion of these proposals?

The outcomes of the first and second terms of reference, addressed in a previous Opinion, were discussed between risk assessors and risk managers in order to decide which food/pathogen combinations should be given priority for the other three terms of reference. This is the fourth Opinion out of five and addresses the risk from Salmonella and Norovirus in tomatoes. Salmonella has been shown to persist on the surface of intact tomatoes.

Abstract Tomato fruit are currently imported from different parts of the world to the EPPO region, and tomato is an important crop throughout the EPPO region both as an outdoor and indoor crop.
The risk that tomato fruit may act as a pathway of introduction of new pests was identified after the introduction of Tuta absoluta in the EPPO region in 2006.

HORTI DAILY 17/07/14 How to deal with bacterial diseases of tomatoes. Three bacterial diseases commonly affect tomato crops: Bacterial Spot (Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatora), Bacterial Speck (Pseudomonas syringae pv tomato), and Bacterial Canker (Clavibacter michiganensis pv michiganensis).
Tomato pith necrosis is a less common bacterial disease that can be confused with bacterial canker. These diseases can affect foliage, fruit, and stems and distinguishing between them can be difficult.

Open Access Abstract The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the spread of Salmonella Enteritidis to different cutting boards (wood, triclosan-treated plastic, glass, and stainless steel) from contaminated poultry skin (5 log CFU/g) and then to tomatoes and to analyze the effect of different protocols used to clean these surfaces to control contamination.
The following procedures were simulated: (1) no cleaning after handling contaminated poultry skin; (2) rinsing in running water; (3) cleaning with dish soap and mechanical scrubbing; and (4) cleaning with dish soap and mechanical scrubbing, followed by disinfection with hypochlorite. The pathogen was recovered from all surfaces following procedure 1, with counts ranging from 1.90 to 2.80 log, as well as from the tomatoes handled on it.

But by common understanding it is often considered a vegetable as well. Regardless of which term you use, tomato is the most “Googled” fruit and one of the most commonly grown. Unfortunately, tomato plants are also a common target for many diseases and pests, affecting production for anyone growing the crop, including commercial producers trying to maximize yield and the small scale gardener who wants flawless and flavorful garden fresh tomatoes for salads, cooking, and canning.

Abstract Outbreaks of Salmonella enterica have been associated with tomatoes and traced back to production areas but the spread of Salmonella in agricultural fields is still poorly understood. Post-rain Salmonella transfer from a point source to the air and then to tomato plants was evaluated. GFP-labeled kanamycin-resistant S. enterica serovar Typhimurium (108 CFU/mL) with and without expression of the rdar morphotype (rough colonies; cells with fimbriae and cellulose) was used as the point source in the center of a rain simulator.
