My acquaintance Tom Franga (picture supplied on request) is an elite tomato grower. However the rain constantly ruins his yeilds. As he is a ranga, he cannot afford to spend much time under the sun. Which is an issue as tomatoes require elite sun. How do you protect your tomatoes from the rain

If he has money to spend and willing to wait a few years to make a profit I recommend in greenhouse/tunnels. Should be rain/hail proof and you won't have to worry about rain and diseases again. http://www.redpath.com.au/commercial-str...-wide-span.html

Well, he is an elite trainee Midwife so he isn't flushed with cash.

I always thought greenhouse gear was associated with drug labs. A lot of Greenhouses at Mamsfield Park in SA if I recall
