Early fruit setting of tomatoes in experimental plots at Riverside, California, has been light in recent years. Unfavorable temperatures in late spring are a probable cause, but increasing atmospheric pollutants may also be involved since phytotoxic levels of total oxidants occur frequently in this area.
