everything around where i live is turning yellow. IDK why but some kind of larva killed my bean plants and my vines (pumpkin, zucchini, cukes) but left my tomato plants alone. They devoured the stems of my plants right at the ground. i noticed this when my plant leaves were turning yellow. GL better luck next year.

If it is not lack of nitrogen, lack of water or insect damage, then it is most likely fungal. If the plants are over 3 foot tall remove the leaves with the damage and raise or remove any leaves that are under a foot above the ground. These will be the first to develop fungus problems due to splatter during watering. A compost tea can also help if sprayed directly on in the morning and allowed to dry before nightfall. Also, to kill most detrimental fungus for next year, cover your beds with black plastic to heat the soil, prior to planting. The hotter the soil gets, the better.

Hope you get it figured out:)

its the end of september, your tomatos are likely just on their way out.

other than that tomatos can be affected by many things, to name a few:

*too much water
*too little water
*too much nitrogen
*too little nitrogen
*too much care
*too little care
*bad vibes
ect. ect.

i find that the case is useally someone has been trying to baby their tom's too much. water moderatly, and relax. if they go, they go, fall is comming/here anyhow.

not much eats toms's, their foliage is poisonous (nightshade family).
