HELP!!!
I developed a viral disease in my veggie garden this year---"curly top." It started on the tomatoes and then spread throughout the garden. I finally had to pull up the entire garden.

Research tells me there is nothing currently available to combat this disease. (It is a virus.) It is transmitted by the leaf hopper. I also read that if I have it this year, it is likely that I will have it again next year. I have never encountered a problem like this.

Has anyone dealt with this problem?

This is what Howard wrote and is in the Article Library under "Learn":

Curly Top


A viral disease that attacks vegetable crops such as tomatoes. To prevent, control the aphids that spread the disease. Use shiny material such as silver mylar under plants. Drench soil with neem product. Spray with Garrett Juice Plus with 1 oz. of orange oil per gallon of spray.
