Wednesday, July 1, 2009 FARMERS INDEPENDENT, Bagley, Minnesota Page 12 li4iiiiiiiiiiiijiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiii; Many home gardeners have seen stress and slow growth in their tomato plants this spring due to the abnormally cool air and soil temperatures. Within the past 10 days, however, the temperatures have warmed considerably providing favorable growing conditions for tomatoes and other warm season vegetablek The succulent growth in combination with warm. humid weather makes tomato plants susceptible to "tomato blight", the common name for Septoria leaf spot and Early Blight which are two of the most destructive fungus diseases of tomatoes. Like all fungus diseases, these two leaf spot diseases cannot be cured, only prevented. Septoria leaf spot is the most prevalent of these diseases and normally infects the leaves and stems, but not the fruits. The disease is characterized by small spots with a dark outer ring and a lighter center. Tiny black fruiting bodies eventually form in the center of the leaf spots and produce spores which continue to spread the infection, climbing the plant like a ladder.

The resulting defoliation can expose the fruit to the sun. which results in blistering and sunscald damage. Early blight is identified by yellowing of leaves with gray colored spots consisting of concentric rings. This disease infects not only leaves, but also stems and fruit, causing defoliation of the plant and fruit rot near the petiole. These diseases survive in the soil on plant debris and on perennial weeds, particularly members of *the nightshade family. The spores are spread by splashing water, insects, soil particles in the wind, and even on the hands and clothing of gardeners. The disease starts on the lower leaves of the plant and moves upward.
