    Every year, Botrytis stem infestation is responsible for considerable crop losses in greenhouse tomatoes. Wounds produced by the common practice of pulling of old leaves frequently are the main infection site for the fungus. No effective control agents for curing infected plants are available. In 2008, WUR Greenhouse horticulture performed field tests on a mature tomato crop with two synthetic fungicides (imazalil and enapyrim), two fungal antagonists (Trichoderma harzianum and Gliocladium catenulatum) and the enzymatic product Enzicur (lactoperoxidase activity)
