tomato leaf spots--better pic

joannaqcw(NY 4/5)May 1, 2011

Could these spots also be the result of drying out/ wind, or am I dealing with a disease? Only 8 of my 92 tomatoes are showing this sort of damage at this point, and I am being more careful with the lot now, but wonder if I need to get rid of these plants.

Very hard to tell by the fuzzy pic, but could be Septoria leaf spot. If so, lesions usually have small black specks in the middle. A number of fungicides are available. Other measures are to limit overhead irrigation (use flood) and if you can, don't plant tomatoes in the same location year after year. At the end of the season, do not compost, but rather, destroy diseased plants.

Thanks. No black spots, just irregular dry-looking areas on the leaves. I've sprayed Serenade, and I don't water in a way that wets foliage.
