A farmer shows tomatoes damaged by the insect Tuta absoluta, in Herakleion on the island of Crete south of mainland Greece on April 25, 2010. The Greek ministry of agrarian development and Cretan agrarian authorities decreed a campaign of eradication against the Tuta absoluta which has been spotted on the island of Crete. The pesticide threat is taken seriously by the representatives because the parasite can cause the entire loss of tomato crops, a key agricultural income earner for Crete.
