Insecticide Spray Damage
Hi Folks. New to this forum but have gardened all my life. I decided to try some heirloom tomatoes this year and put out 40 different ones, more than I usually plant but read the yield is less that of hybrids.
Anyway, I noticed whiteflies in a number of my plants this past Saturday, and decided to spray for them. I've used Malathion for them in the past, so I went and got a new bottle and since I already had some Sevin mixed in my sprayer from spraying my beans a couple of weeks ago and didn't want to waste it, I just mixed in the Malathion with the Sevin and began spraying very late that evening.
Today (Monday) I go out to tie them up some more and noticed that a good deal of the new growth and leaves have turned brown, like they were burned from the spray. Not all my tomatoes were so affected, but most were. Looks like a lot of the newer flowers were burned as well.
Has anyone experienced this before? I'm looking for advice, not a condemnation of my choice to use chemical pesticides.
