The first symptoms of tomato bacterial wilt are usually wilting of the leaves at the top of the plant. The wilting typically occurs in the afternoon and recovers in the morning. As the disease progresses, the wilting becomes more severe and can affect the entire plant. The leaves may also turn yellow or brown.
Other symptoms of tomato bacterial wilt include:
Reduced fruit production
Death of the plant
There is no cure for tomato bacterial wilt. Once a plant is infected, it will eventually die. However, some steps can be taken to prevent the spread of the disease.
1. Remove and destroy infected plants. This will help to prevent the spread of the disease to healthy plants.
2. Do not plant tomatoes in the same area for two years in a row.
3. Use disease-resistant varieties.
