Tomato - Anthracnose

Management options by Alan Walters: Remove infected crop residue/debris (including fruits) from field and destroy by burning if possible Rotate fields to non-solanaceous crop Weed control is important, since the pathogen that causes this disease has a broad host range including many different weed species Fungicide sprays are most effective if applied from first fruit-set to harvest, and applications are especially important as fruit begin to ripen Staking and mulching soil around plants (with straw) can help reduce losses to Anthracnose
