Carter TOMATO CROP OFTEN SPOILED BY BLOSSOM j ; DROP, EXPERT SAYS Plant Affliction Not Serious If J.V proper Care is Taken Healthy, vigorous tomato vfaofes without tomatoes usually ine^ns only one thing-blossom Ampi says Howard B. Cordner, ^homa A. and M. College htffticulture specialist ssom drop, while not seri-ous^lf properly taken care of in tin\e, will cause a serious garden shortage of tomatoes if growers do jhot guard" aginst the danger in $me. * Fundamentally, blossom drop is due to two factors, temperature above 90 degrees Fahrenheit; and lack of moisture. High temperatures prevent polleniza-fciOjl and the development of seeds. The tomato fruits will* not mature without the accompaniment of seed. Lack of moisture is a contributing factor because itfojsture is necessary for the prdper development of a plant, Cordner says. .! Prevention Explained *^o prevent blossom drop in tomatoes, Cordner urges the use of good, strong, "sturdy plants, planted early. The early date wilf give plants an opportunity to grow and develop flowers and small tomatoes before the high temperatures come.

Some of the early varieties that .normally flower early include the Earli-ana type,.the Pen State Earli-ana, the Penn Staote, and the �Bison. They are desirable in limited plantings only, for early garden or market" because their fruits usually sunburn with the adventof hot weather.
