Name that affliction!
This happens to all my tomato plants every year---no matter what variety. Sometimes, a little more severe and quicker than other. I rotate my crops judiciously and have even tried solarizing the soil. I've tried supposed resistant varieties like early girl(VFF). There's gotta be a somewhat cost effective solution, no???
Short of removing and replacing the soil, are there any solutions to minimizing soil-borne illnesses? Can I try to overpopulate the bad microbes with good microbes (i,e., tons of compost and compost teas?
I read recently that horseradish root grown and then tilled into the soil might help(research at Penn State, I believe).
So, I'm asking the "experts" here on gardenweb-- Help!
Here's some pics of my brandywines---
