Please help me everyone here, my tomato seedlings are falling over/damping off right in the seedling tray, from my little experience, I beleive this is fugus attack since cut worms cannot be present in the cocopeat, but I still treated them for cutworm but the problem still persists, how can I treat this problem before I loose everything please help o? If this is fungi please what can I use to stop it

I dont think this is cutworm oo, neither is it damping off.

1. Lack of nutrient. Seems you didn't mix manure or any nutrient with your cocopeat. See, you only try that cocopeat + water if you are leaving your seedling tray on the soil to allow for root penetration into the levelled soil. Else you must use manure or fertlizer. Also avoid moving your seedlings all the time. Leave them and allow their root to be well attached to soil. Anytime you move them, their roots cut and they may wilther for sometime before they develop.another root

2. I believe something like birds, rodents or lizards are walking on those gentle seedlings making them.to fall. Cover them.with net and you'll notice they won't fall again.

My little observations though. Goodluck

Damping off, get a copper based fungicide and spray... Don't over irrigate you're nursery and it's better done in the morning

I can probably sell you a packet (1500 seeds) for N13, 500.

I have not grown Platinum before, but it seems it is a very good seed, from what I have been reading here. However, from the pictures I have seen the plants seem rather tall thus necessitating staking - this can be costly in terms of time, money and effort.

If you want to grow a very large field, the variety I have would be a better choice since it doesn't grow very tall and does not require staking. Yes, you lose may be 10% of the fruits to rot, but I think it is worth it when you consider the effort that goes into staking.

Staking is also a barrier to you scaling up. How do you stake 20,000 plants without investing a ton of money

A tomato variety that is low in height, produces well, highly disease resistant, and is generally low-maintenance is a no brainer in my view.

If you look at Tomato Jos (the American lady investor spending millions of dollars growing tomatoes in Kaduna (I think)), her tomato plants are not staked. That's because she plants several hectares and staking is simply not economically feasible in that situation.

I'm not given to hyperbole, but I'm tempted to say that if this particular tomato seed is adopted widely in the South today, in a year or two, there would be little need to import tomatoes from the North.

Based on my experience, it seems to do well in ALL seasons - dry, wet, heavy rainfall, low rainfall, very high temperature etc. Also, the structure, shape, and colour of the fruit is excellent for Nigerian market and taste. It is possible there are tomatoes that produce more in Nigeria today, but boy, I would be surprised if anything beats this tomato when all factors are considered.

That is why I want people to try it in different locations so we can confirm if my report of its performance is confirmed across the entire south or whether my location just happens to be well suited to it.

If you are in the North and you want to try in your location, I'd be happy to send you some seeds.













PLS can I still get some seeds.
