New virus-resistant tomato varieties

Hazera has launched a series of new tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV)-intermediate resistant varieties that are designed to offer an optimal balance between protection and performance while providing growers an effective tool to face the highly infectious virus affecting growers worldwide.
