The Fabulous Underworld of a Tomato Canopy
Photos by Debbie Roos, Agricultural Extension Agent.
I spent a couple of days recently scouting tomatoes for an on-farm research project I am working on. I was supposed to be looking for hornworms and fruitworms, but I kept getting side-tracked by all the amazing critters I found on the underside of tomato leaves! I know many of you will have noticed them as you harvest, so in case you have been wondering what some of them are, check out the photos below.
