Phytophthora infestans on tomato.

2 commenti

Known as ‘Late blight’ attacks potatoes and tomatoes, and also weeds and ornamentals belonging to the Solonacee family.

It’s caused by an oomycete, that spread around very easily thanks to its volatile spores.

To fight and prevent it: plant resistant varieties, use fungicides that control and protect  from infection but not kill the oomycete, destroy diseased plants, don’t throw away plant’s parts with signs of infectinos, above all in to compost.

Here some photos with signs of disease in tomato:
