Tomato Leaf Mold (Cladosporium fulvum)

Leaf mold on tomato foliage is usually not a problem in field crops, Cladosporium Fulvum, on the other hand, does pose a threat to crops in enclosed environments.


Gray Mold (Botrytis Cinerea)

The saprophytic fungus Botrytis cinerea (gray mold) lives primarily on dead or decaying organic matter, but in favorable conditions such as excessive humidity, this fungus can very quickly become an aggressive parasite on healthy plants.


Bacterial Spot On Tomatoes

Bacterial spot on tomatoes is caused by four closely related strains of bacteria: Xanthomonas vesicatoria, Xanthomonas euvesicatoria, Xanthomonas gardneri, and Xanthomonas perforans.


Powdery mildew (Oidium neolycopersici, Leveillula taurica)

Powdery mildew can attack tomatoes at all stages of development, even small seedlings in the cotyledon stage, but it is most commonly seen in older plants.


Blossom End Rot

Most often, a lack of calcium in the soil is not the true cause of blossom end rot.
