Fusarium Wilt on Tomatoes

Fusarium

Wilt on Tomatoes

Description: The first symptom is yellowing of older leaves,

then bright yellowing from top to bottom of plant, often

affecting only one branch of plant. Sometimes leaves

droop and curve downward. Plants often wilt and die.

Solution: Maintain

soil pH at 6.5 to 7.0. Test soil pH; if it is too acid,

use ground limestone to raise pH. Most garden centers

sell ground limestone. When fertilizing, use a slow-release

organic source of nitrogen. Sprinkle SoilGardTM Microbial

Fungicide over seed at time of sowing, before

covering seed with soil. When starting seed indoors,

mix SoilGard with potting soil before seed is sown.
