Sixteen replicated and 15 observational, mid-maturity processing tomato varieties were transplanted May 9 in a commercial field planted to Nun 6404. Cooperators are Steve and Sam Meek and John Pon of J.H. Meek and Sons. Stand establishment was very good. Irrigation was with a first-year, buried drip system. Growth was vigorous. Verticillium wilt and some tomato spotted wilt virus are having an impact.
From Highway 113, take the County Road 31 exit heading west on CR 31 for ~ 5 miles to CR 95. Continue 1/2 mile westward. Turn south along dirt road into field. The trial is toward the middle of the field. Signs will be posted near entrance to the field on CR 31.
