I am not a veg specialist but I do appreciate the opportunity to keep up with some of the discussions of this group.
Would like to pose a question...
I have a local commercial grower producing fresh market tomatoes under high tunnel culture
This year he experienced some losses from Sclerotinia...while “minor” this year...he is concerned about the potential for increase in the 2010 season.
He is seeking control options.
Seems most/all soil fumigants are not appropriate for this production environment...is that true?
He has had one product brought to his attention as an option Contans marketed by Advans LLC
It apparently is a biological product that is OMRI approved...Does anyone have experience with this
Type of product or have other suggestions that I might share...

To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds and watch the renewal of life- this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfying thing a man (person) can do.
