Can someone please help me identify the disease shown in the attached image. It is affecting all my tomatoes.
How can I eradicate this disease?
Are these tomatoes still edible?
I am in Nairobi, Kenya.

RE: help me identify this tomato disease

are the leaves on the plant spotted and dying?
if so it could be blight.
I spray my plants with 1tablespoon of baking soda in 1 gallon of water once a week or until recovery.
be sure to spray under leaves also.
adding 1/2 cup of diatomaceous earth to the spray will help control insects.

Perhaps tomato russet mites

Baking soda? I wonder if that would be the basis for lyme spraying?
