Good day! Some of my tomato plants were definitely sick, but I am not sure with what exactly. Their color was dull/yellowish, they were producing almost nothing. I tried to look for certain spots on the leaves to help me know exactly what was going on but little luck. I pulled them and threw them away but I am curious if in the future if pathogens can be spread by the gloves I used when handling the tomatoes?
Question 2, some of these were staked with bamboo. Is it possible that the pathogen could attach to the parts of the bamboo that were in the ground? I want to know if I need to cut off those portions or throw out the entire piece of bamboo. Thanks for any help!
