As always in spite of cornmeal tea dousing, Neem oil, and even Copper sulfate I am getting my yearly yellow fungus and now some black fungus on my plants. I know the disease is in the soil. Maybe I should soak the soil with gasoline and set it on fire. I am just kidding, but so tired of this fungal disease infecting my plants. I have lots of fruit and have used weekly fertilization including compost tea, tomato fertilizer, seaweed, molasses, fish emulsion, and apple cider vinegar. Any ideas?
You're lucky this year to have fruit. A lot of people have healthy green plants with no tomatoes.
Do you grow your tomatoes in raised beds, and are you careful not to water the foliage when you water? They seem to not like getting wet (beyond rainfall). Have you tried putting straight store-strength hydrogen peroxide in a sprayer and misting the leaves when the yellow starts (or even before to prevent the fungus getting started)?
When you water, are the leaves getting wet? Tomatoes hate that and will reward you with all sorts of fungal problems. What varieties did you plant? I'm trying Tycoon for the first time and have yet to have blight.
Now is the time to plant for a fall harvest. You have until mid-July.
