Guard Against Blight on Tomatoes

Tomato blight can ruin a gardener's dreams of tomatoes! Blight is a fungal disease spread by spores. It is most severe in wet weather. There are three basic kinds of blight on tomatoes, Septoria Leaf Spot, early blight caused by the fungus Alternaria solani, and late blight from the fungal-type organism known as Phytophthora infestans .

Septoria leaf spot appears on the lower leaves of the plant after tomatoes begin setting on the plant. This fungus rarely affects the fruits of the plant but it reduces yield and quality. As leaves thin out from this fungus, the exposed tomatoes no longer have leaf protection from the sun and often are damaged by sunscald. This fungus spreads from plant to plant by splashing water.

Early blight affects lower leafs first too. It is first seen as dark brown to black spots on the leaves. Later the leaves turn yellow and drop. Even the stems of the tomato can be affected by early blight. Sometimes black spots appear on the tomatoes as well and often the tomatoes fall off the plant before they have a chance to ripen. This fungus overwinters on old tomato vines as well as on certain weeds.

Late blight most often appears in moist weather when nights are cool and days are quite warm. This fungus shows itself with dark green to nearly black wet-looking spots that begin spreading from the edges of the tomato leaves. Often a downy white growth appears on the lower leaf surface close to the outer part of the spots. This fungus is a rapid spreader!

What can be done about tomato blight? First, don't plant tomatoes in the same spot each year. Rotate them so you plant them in the same spot every three to four years. Next, if you have had a problem with blight before, plan to use a good veggie-safe fungicide such as Fertilome Broad Spectrum Landscape & Garden Fungicide or Bonide Fung-onil. These fungicides need to be applied every week or two beginning before any fungus appears. Once you see it, you may be too late in your efforts to destroy it.

With proper planning and care, you can avoid tomato blight and have a great harvest of tomatoes.

Identifying Emerald Ash Borers

Identifying Emerald Ash Borers
Emerald Ash Borers have invaded White County. These bright green beetles are 1/3" long by 1/16" wide and can be seen from mid-May to late July. In the larval stage from August to May, they do their damage by eating underneath the bark and destroying the vessels of the tree through which its nutrition must flow.
