Tomato    None Given

Does pruning your tomato plant open up the possibility of fungal diseases? If so, what is the best prevention treatment?

Robert,
Plant pathogenic fungi normally need't any damage to infect plants, but pruning + high humidity will increase infection by necrotrophic pathogens such as Botrytis and Sclerotinia (gray and white mold). Indeed, pruning can increase chances for virus and bacteria infection.
