    I mother has grown the best tomatoes for years, and all she does is strip the infected leaf or stem from the plant and that will normally take care of the problem.

    To prevent the issue make sure you have enough space between plants for optimum airflow.

    When watering plants soak the roots and avoid watering the leaves.

    If it's too late and late blight has set in, consult an expert at your local nursery. They can provide information on the best fungicides for your problem.

    Good Luck!

    Remove and destroy infected leaves (be sure to wash your hands afterwards). Once blight is present and progresses, it becomes more resistant to biofungicide and fungicide. Treat it as soon as possible and on a schedule. Check out link below

    For early blight remove lower leaves after first fruit sets, remove affected leaves as they appear, plant tomatoes in a different area next year. For late blight, you might have to pull and destroy the plant, select resistant varieties next year.

    Sure: Early blight shows as one or two spots on the leaf. Spots are abt ¼ inch in diameter. Spots have tan centers with rings in them and yellow edges. The tomatoes will have dark, sunken spots on the stem end of fruits. With late blight spots start out pale green near the edge of leave and gradually darken. In humid conditions, mold appears on the undersides of leaves. Brown, shiny spots will appear on the tomatoes. In humid conditions, white mold also forms.Black and brown spots spread over the entire vine and the plant dies.
