The unusually cool weather for July has spurred several problems for vegetable growers throughout the county and state.
One of the most common questions coming through the Extension Office this week has been for tomatoes. Growers are seeing the older leaves of tomato plants having brown lesions, wilting, and also in some severe cases the fruit have dark brown rings show up. This is a very common fungal disease, called early blight, and is occurring throughout Kentucky. This disease tends to really show itself when the weather is cooler than normal, like it has been this year.
