I'm sorry, I don't know the answer! But, here's a reference for
spraying tomato plants with the antibiotic in question :

Weide, R., Koornneef, M., and Zabel, P. (1989). A simple non-destructive
spraying assay for the detection of an active kanamycin resistance gene in
transgenic tomato plants. Theor. Appl. Genet. 78, 169-172.
