Bonide products?

Post  GardenGroupie on 7/4/2014, 4:31 pm

Hi,

As I watch the rain come down on my garden and the temps going down into the 50s later, I'm thinking of what I'll need to do to stave off tomato plant problems. 

Have any of you used Bonide, Tomato & Vegetable 3 in 1? It's meant for disease and insect control. Normally I wouldn't use these products, but this weather has me thinking of preventative measures. 

Thanks,
GardenGroupie

Why treat if you don't have a problem? My advice is to hang onto your money.

Thanks camprn. This morning everything, but several dropped tomato and pepper flowers leaves, seem okay. I had some problems with blight the last two years, so when the cold rain comes, I feel a preventative urge coming on.

According to a Tomato class given by the local Master Guardeners, if you normally get blight then you should use a preventative spray before you have any symptioms.  Once you get it you can not cure it but you can keep it from spreading by using fungicides.  I use Bonide Copper Fungicide.  But I have only sprayed twice so it is not keeping the disease under control.

+1, yes yes, agreed about blight prevention. My previous comment was in response to the 3 in 1 product.

Camprn - from what I can tell, that site only follows late blight.  My usual problem is early blight.

How is it you can tell which organism you have?

Survey says....

Post  GardenGroupie on 7/6/2014, 6:11 pm

Early blight. Found it on one leaf on my Federle. I thoroughly inspected and didn't find any other infected leaves. Does this mean the plant is infected and will spread even if I removed the leaf? I've got my Bonide Tomato 3 in 1 and ready to go...

The above is a picture of early blight from Camprn's link.  Are you sure yours is early blight.  I don't see the concentric rings on yours.  Of course, the symptoms may vary somewhat.  Usually my early blight starts out with these dark circles and then forms yellow rings around the outside of the darker spots.  BUT, the treatment will probably be the same.

Garden groupie, send the pic to UMass and see what they think. They may want to test for late blight. If you still have the leaf put it in a baggie in case they want it. I may end up merging this thread with the blight thread.

check your mailbox. http://ag.umass.edu/umass-extension-your-community
The important thing is you noticed it and removed it. Read all you can about the different diseases. Check the links in the pests and diseases stickies. Look at A LOT of photos online. Contact a local Master Gardener

Thanks camprm. I left a message at the Waltham 4 H office for the coordinator. That is the same person I call last time with no response.
