FYI: Info On Tomato Purple Leaf Disease
This is just an informational post because we have some avid tomato growers here.
I stumbled across this thread on the Tomato Pest and Disease Forum the other day and thought it interesting.
I haven't seen this disease before and don't know of anyone in our part of the country who has.
I just think it is good to stay up to date on the latest tomato diseases.
When Jay and I and others talk about purpling on tomato leaves, we generally mean the faintest tinges of purple that often indicate environmental stress or a nutritional deficiency. We are not discussing this disease.
If you ever were to see this exact disease on your plants, you probably should notify OSU or your county agriculture extension agent because they would want to know a new disease has appeared in Oklahoma.
It is very unlikely any of us will ever see this, but I thought the thread and the 2 links embedded within it would be of interest to avid tomato growers.
