Grey mould (Botrytis cinerea) of tomato

This factsheet summarises current information on the biology of tomato grey mould in glasshouse crops and gives practical advice on how to minimise losses to the disease with minimal use of fungicides.

Grey mould (Botrytis) of protected tomato (Figures 1 & 2) is a widespread, common and potentially devastating disease. It can affect all parts of the growing crop and is also a cause of postharvest fruit rot. With increasing adoption of measures that reduce heat use during crop production, there is a greater risk of damaging attacks by Botrytis. This factsheet summarises current information on the biology of tomato grey mould in glasshouse crops and gives practical advice on how to minimise losses to the disease with minimal use of fungicides.
