Are there special types of tomatoes that are resistant to septoria leaf spot?


Answer by  scwriter007 (254)

No commercial varieties exist that are resistant to septoria leaf spot although resistance has been seen in some noncommercial tomatoes. Fungicides are used to control septoria leaf spot.

Unfortunately, no leaf spot-resistant cultivars have been identified in tomatoes. However, a yearly rotation involving corn, cereals, and legumes can help prevent it. A four-year rotation might be needed for a particularly heavy leaf spotting. Any plants that are infested should be destroyed by burning.

No, all tomoatoes are suspect to septoria leaf spot. If you notice spots on the leaves of your tomato plant, pull the entire plant up and dispose of but not in your compost. This disease is contagious to other tomato plants so composting and reusing the soil can cause contamination to other plants.

If you choose heritage varieties of tomatoes they tend to be more resistant. The best part is they will be even more flavorful and hearty.

If that disease is similar to tobacco mosaic virus,I think that would be the same kinds of plants resistant to that disease.Try hybrids that say disease-resistant.


Answer by  FMTC (109)

Yes there are. However, the resistant tomatoes are not sold to the public. There are several types of tomatoes believed to be resistant but they are only used for breeding.
