Curly Top

Curly .

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 AzaSol neem product. Spray with Garrett Juice Plus with 1 oz. of orange oil per gallon of spray. BioWash sprayed every two weeks can be effective and can be mixed with the Garrett Juice spray. We have also gotten reports that hydrogen peroxide cures viral diseases such as curly top and mosaic virus. The 35 percent solution from the grocery store seems to work well, but it will burn foliage when sprayed during hot weather. What the temperature limit is needs to be determined. It always should be sprayed during the coolest part of the day.
