Management and Control of Bacterial Wilt

Diseases are a major hurdle in tomato cultivation, both under controlled and field conditions.

Among them bacterial wilt is most devastating on tomato causing yield losses up to 90 per cent.
The disease is also known as southern bacterial blight or solanaceous wilt. Rapid and complete wilting of normal grownup plants is a characteristic symptom of bacterial wilt.

During warm and wet climatic conditions most conspicuous symptom of sudden drooping of leaves, without yellowing, often accompanied by rotting of the stem are seen. The roots appear healthy and well developed.

Cultural management

The disease can be kept under check if crop rotations are followed with crops such as maize, ragi and okra, since they can reduce the pathogen population significantly.

This naturally-occurring substance is mostly found in the liver, kidney, testes, pancreas and spleen. It helps to limit the activities of free radicals, which can be harmful to the body.

Muriate of Potash (MOP)


Potassium chloride (commonly referred to as Muriate of Potash or MOP) is the most common
potassium source used in agriculture, accounting for about 95% of all potash fertilisers used worldwide.

Its nutrient composition is approximately:

Potassium: 50%
Chloride: 46%

MOP has a high nutrient concentration and is therefore relatively price competitive with other

The Calcium Nitrate

WHAT IS CALCIUM NITRATE?

It is a fertilizer made up of two nutrients, with a white grainy appearance that dissolves quickly in
water and can be absorbed rapidly by plants. It is an perfect combination of %15.5 nitrogen in nitrate form that rapidly dissolves in water and %26.5 calcium. Its nitrate nitrogen and fully water soluble calcium combination provides good affects not found in any other fertilizer.

CALCIUM NITRATE

This is a greenhouse -type fertilizer, pure in composition and of uncoated granules that dissolves completely in water. Its greenhouse type is used in greenhouse and outdoor conditions where irrigation is done by drip or spring

Headache Information

A headache or cephalalgia is pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It can be a symptom of a number of different conditions of the head and neck. The brain tissue itself is not sensitive to pain because it lacks pain receptors. Rather, the pain is caused by disturbance of the pain-sensitive structures around the brain. Nine areas of the head and neck have these pain-sensitive structures, which are the cranium (the periosteum of the skull), muscles, nerves, arteries and veins, subcutaneous tissues, eyes, ears, sinuses and mucous membranes..
