NEW TYPE TOMATO PLANT
WILL IMPROVE STRAIN
Tamps, Pis.?A mm strain of
tomato?-proof against the late blight
fungus and net merely "resistant" to
itiMa likely to be made available to
growers in the near future, according
to Daniel H. Glick, world famous
seed grower of Smoketown, Pa. Glide
recently made a tour of the Glades
and East Coast sections of Florida
where he studied the late blight situ
ation which has become so serious.
"Last season we had several new
tyfjws of tomatoes growing on our
farms whiek qhowed special promise
in this directions-immunity to the
late blight fungus," Glick said, "and
these have been developed by
plant specialists." He indicated that
the immune type of tomato might be
announced at any time during 1947.
Glick is credited with having saved
the situation once before, several
years ago, by announcing new types
of tomatoes '"which were virtually
immune to nail-head rust. Up to that
time, rust had threatened to wipe
out the tomato industry in Florida
and other states. (Rick stated tost
since virtually all methods for "con
trol" of the late blight have failed,
a new attain which is immune to the
fungus is the only answer. He indi
cated his organization may have such
an immune type of tomato, although
seed for- this strain would be scarce
for many years.
