Early Blight

(Potatoes & Tomatoes)

Description: Problem for potatoes and tomatoes. Irregular

brown spots show on lower leaves first. Lower leaves

fall off, tomatoes are exposed to sun, causing sunscald.

On old plants, it sometimes causes black, sunken spots

near the stem end of tomatoes.

Solution: Begin

applying Soap-Shield® Fungicidal Soap

or Copper Dust soon after setting out

plants, then every 7-10 days. Reapply following rain.

Apply more frequently if disease is increasing rapidly.

Weed Barrier Mats prevent splashing

from soil so blight spreads more slowly.
