Not fusarium, but what?
After pulling up the worst of the wilted and non-producing tomato plants of the first wave, I cut into stems looking for fusarium. I saw none of the rotting that would indicate fusarium, what I saw was mostly healthy plant tissue, except in the center where I saw either a gap or crumbly styrofoam looking stuff. When I pulled up the plants, the roots were very compact. It seems as though the plants were rootbound, but the thing is, they were in raised beds whit room to spread. Now that I've cut back the wilted foliage, and taken out the worst of the bunch, some of the remaining ones seem to be growing just fine. My Momotaro even has new blossoms (wonder if they'll set in this heat). Do you think they got root bound? If so, would root stimulator in the hole for the fall garden help? What can I do to alleviate this problem??
