Septoria

Leaf Spot (Tomatoes)

Description: The most destructive of all tomato problems

Small brown spots appear on bottom leaves first. Leaves

gradually turn yellow and die as the disease works its

way upwards. Premature death of vine significantly reduces

tomato production.

Solution: Use Soap-Shield® Fungicidal Soap

or Copper Dust starting after setting

out plants, then every 7-10 days. Apply more frequently

if disease is increasing rapidly. Reapply after rain.

Weed Barrier Mats also help by keeping

fungi in the soil from splashing on leaves during rains.

Try a foliar spray of Liquid Kelp from the time plants

are set out to improve plant vigor. If possible, use

drip irrigation to avoid wetting leaves.
