I've been extremely lucky so far...but my luck ran out. Going from 30-s to 80's in a few days, and then no sun for another 3-4 days is a recipe for disaster. The only think I've seen listed is Serenade...which I'm trying. More cold weather coming and then who knows? Fish still doing fine. Strawberries doing well. new spinach in DWC and just finished harvesting lettuce and broccoli. Just put up some chard, tomatoes, and more chives. I moved the trays inside due to the cold. They are still a week away from germinating...just need to keep them warm.

Are these AP tomatoes? Some of this is cultural - make sure you clean up well when your season is over (if it ever is) since this overwinters on plant debris. If you can cover the tomatoes so they don't get rained on that will help. I'd remove any leaves down near the media where they might get splashed on and also remove any infected tissues. It probably won't go away but it should help. As far as sprays :dontknow:

Hope you get it under control

No, not seedlings...established producing plants. First outbreak during crazy weather and when we had high temps during day (mid 80's, then low at night 40's). I have been using Serenade, and it seems to have slowed down...which is about all I expected. No debris in bed, and I remove old, weak leaves daily. The system is now in a
poly house...so no rain...but we had lots of humidity and that's when the trouble began. Also added a fan to help dry off inside moisture. Since these are determinate...i only need to keep them hanging on for another 3-5 weeks, then all the blooms will have set, and then I can switch out for next crop. On the plus side, these are the best toms I have ever tasted, and I can't wait to try my new ones that I have started.
