Be careful while managing tomato fruit borer
Different coloured caterpillars (fruit borers) are observed. During the new plantation, also raised the marigold around the field boundaries as a trap crop. Arrange one light trap in your tomato field. Mirid bugs found on plants act as predator by suck the eggs laid by female moth of this caterpillar. Since large sized caterpillars may not be control by the insecticides, collect & destroy them mechanically before the application of insecticides.
