Anthracnose--need advice!

Posted by Hoschton 8a (My Page) on

I'm in northeast GA, having a terrible time with anthracnose fungus on my tomatoes. Very disheartening to see gorgeous tomatoes begin to ripen, then those sunken water-soaked-looking spots start to appear amd ruin the crop. I've planted in this same area for years, seldom rotating out; I know this is part of the problem. One newer area of tomatoes is just beginning to show signs of it, and another area is "clean" so far. I mulch with paper and straw and use drip irrigation.
Any and all advice is welcome.

Do you use a fungicide? If so, which one. If not, why?
