Since 2012, the Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International’s Plantwise program has guided growers in 10 Latin American countries on managing Tuta absoluta, a devastating lepidopteran pest of tomatoes, and substituting or complementing chemical control with more sustainable strategies. Here, a grower in Bolivia examines a tomato during a Plantwise training with plant doctors who provide diagnoses and management advice. (Photo courtesy of Yelitza C. Colmenárez, Ph.D.)
