How do I get rid of tomato blite?

For the last 2 years my tomatoes got the blite and I lost most of the crop. Had to go buy tomatoes for canning.

    Your crops need to be rotated every year. www.veggie/gardener.com/tips-for-preventing-and-treating-tomato-blights/

    Unfortunately, not much will help once plants have been infected. Prevention is the best option. Copper sprays are a good option. Also, remove leaves as soon as they look infected, and burn or throw away-don't compost or allow to remain on the soil, this will just continue the cycle and spread the spores. Also, rotate your plants. Plant new, healthy plants in new soil, plant something else where the tomatoes were. And don't water at night. The moisture that doesn't evaporate allows the fungus spores to thrive.

    Add some compost to your soil and try again unfortunately once they get blight you need to pull them out and throw away before they infect your other plants
