This innovation addresses Tuta absoluta, a tomato leafminer, which causes damage to tomato plants. The pest can reduce tomato yields by 40-100%, so this innovation protects against excessive use of pesticides to manage it.
Net exclusion houses keep the pest away when combined with pheromone traps. Protecting tomatoes from Tuta absoluta saves the crop.
