Iowa tomato growers face critical challenges in pest control. The public is concerned about the health risks of pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables as well as environmental contamination; the result has been fewer, more restricted, more expensive pesticide products for "minor" crops such as tomatoes. At the same time, the market continues to demand high-quality, abundant, blemish-free produce.
