Ron Walser, urban small-farm specialist at New Mexico State University's Agricultural Science Center at Los Lunas, has conducted a two-year study that demonstrates an economical way to ensure having tomatoes without the curly top virus.


"The results were so dramatic both years that growers who have seen the study are definitely going to use it in the future. It gives them confidence that they are going to have a tomato crop," Walser said of using row cover material to cover tomato plants and block the infestation of curly top virus.
