yellow wilt in tomatoes

Hi,

Does anyone have experience with yellow wilt on their tomatoes? It looks like I might lose about half of my tomato crop to this disaster, and was wondering if anyone had any tips to keep it from coming back.

daconil

Hi Sarah, I bought a chemical called daconil. You mix it so many parts to so many parts of water and spray after a rain, or in the early am or of late evening. I have a problem with tomato blite. It has been so wet here the last 2 growing seasons and I found this chemical. It is compatible with both edible and non edible. I use a garden sprayer to apply and I wrote on the container poisionious. Hope this helps
Bonnie

Is it just the bottom leaves turning yellow? If so, it may possibly be stopped by using epsom salts. Just sprinkle about 1/2 cup around the bottom of each one and water in. It is because they are depleted of magnesium if that is your problem with them.

No, it is stems all the way up the plants. It looks like they have been sucked dry, as the stem is skinny, and the leaves are yellow. The stem almost falls off the main trunk part of the tomato plant.

I usually water directly at the bottom of the plant early mornings or evening. I rarely water the leaves.

Sarah, Everyone else had good suggestions...maybe you should try one of them. As for me, this year I invested in a 'soaker hose' and haven't had one yellow leaf yet, Infact, my plants are very lush and even though staked, they ramble all over with lots of tomatoes. Had only one red one, so far. That 'one' got devoured very quickly!! LOL
