TOMATO DISEASES ARE EVERYWHERE BECAUSE OF SOIL...WE MUST LEARN TO BUILD OUR SOIL TO PRODUCE DISEASE FREE VEGETABLES, BUG RESISTANT, EVEN SOME FROST RESISTANT, WEEDS DO NOT LIKE RICH SOIL EITHER....
1. ROCK DUST 2. BIOCHAR 3. MYCORRHIZA 4. HUGELKULTUR 5. MUST USE GOOD COMPOST BASE TO START WITH 6. CHLORINE KILLS STUFF, LET WATER SIT 24 HRS IN OPEN CONTAINER WILL HELP....USE FISH, KELP, MOLASSES, THESE WILL HELP...GOOGLE THESE ITEMS AND LEARN HOW TO USE THEM....THEN BUY SOME CANNING JARS...ROY (EMAIL: butchfomby@yahoo.com if i can help you...

Cut off the diseased leaf stems
by: Clark

This is pretty common and can spread upwards. On my plants I identified it as septoria leaf spot. What I've done to control this pretty successfully is use a multi-pronged attack:


1) Spread clean dried grass clippings on the soil surface to prevent water splashing onto the lower leaves.

2) Cut off diseased leaves or whole stems that are yellowing and dying.

3) Spraying copper fungicide on the entire plant every seven days until the problem is controlled.

Do all that and the problem may disappear. It did for me.
