    Re: Are these sentences gramatically correct?

    Suggestion:
    The tomato plants (eliminate the prepositional phrase) were treated by aerial spraying the plants with bioagents and by watering the plants roots.

    I believe this is better "parallelism."

    In this scientific report, preserve 'plants of tomatoes'. You are discussing bioagents and their use, and using a particular plant, tomatoes, as your example.

    Plants of tomatoes were treated with these bioagents by spraying on the exposed parts of the plants, and watering soil near their roots.
    or
    Plants of tomatoes were treated with these bioagents by spraying on the foliage of the plants, and watering soil near their roots.
    (Note: foliage refers to the leaves but not the stalks and stems. You decide whether this is accurate for your purposes.)
