tomato blight

Post by rchaput » 24 Jul 2009, 18:03

wondering if anyone has any ideas, or if there has been previous discussion, on rxs to combat tomato blight? my plants are withering as i type. i did a search on 'blight' and came up empty but possibly i'm missing something? i'm new to the site and maybe am not using it properly. thank you for any comments or ideas.

You could considera basil as the putative 'constitutional' for tomato. 'Blight' in the search box on the search page comes up with

All-c. Allium Cepa
Ferr. Ferrum Metallicum
Ferr-p. Ferrum Phosphoricum
Mang. Manganum
Nat-m. Natrum Muriaticum
Phos. Phosphorus
Sulph. Sulphur
Sat Satureia Hortensis
SimHys Hyssop
BiP - M2 Biplantol mykos II
BD501 501

Don't forget to let us know how you get on.

Cheers

SimHys and BiP, these are not familiar to me. elsewhere someone suggested Sol-t-aeg for blight. i used it on all 14 of my tomatoes. most of the tomatoes i had to pull out several days later, completely dead, however i think they were probably too far gone at the time of medicating them. there were 4 that were not as badly off. the blight appears, maybe, to be halted in these plants. it's about a week since the others said bye-bye and these haven't gotten much sicker since then. not sure. i wouldn't have expected the parts that had been destroyed by fungus to recover, so i might take simple survival as being indicative of remedy action?

Carbo Veg can also be indicated, according to Christiane Maute

Well spotted Iasdore. Since the last time I posted the 'search for blight' list in July 2009 it has grown in large part due to Frau Maute's publication.

Now it offers:

Ferr-p. Ferrum Phosphoricum
Mang. Manganum
Nat-m. Natrum Muriaticum
Phos. Phosphorus
Sulph. Sulphur
Sat Satureia Hortensis
Hyss Of Hyssop Oficinalis
BiP - M2 Biplantol mykos II
BD501 501
BD508 508
Sporangia Sporangia Equisetum
Cupr. Cuprum Metallicum
Nat-s. Natrum Sulphuricum
Carb-v. Carbo Vegetabilis
Thuj. Thuja Occidentalis
Anthr. Anthracinum
Canth. Cantharis
Caust. Causticum
Rhus-t. Rhus Toxicodendron

Hi Kurkure

What did you spray/water on the plants? Is your comment a continuation from a previous posting?
