Nothing I have read says to use vinegar.  I am going to use Isopropyl Alcohol until I can get around to ordering an Industrial Product.  If I didn't have this disease (Southern Blight) I think I would not order anything stronger.  I am sure these Industrial Products are expensive.  I will have to investigate.  At least two university articles mentioned Quaternary ammonium Chloride Salts - Brand name products are Green-Shield, Physan 20, KleenGrow.

yolos,

I didn't pay attention much to your pictures. I will add some info. I got the southern blight, and it looks like any blight, so I first went and got a fungicide for reg. blights. By the time I went to the ext. office, the downey stuff at the base of the plants had progressed to the next stage.  The ground looks like you poured mustard seeds at the base of plants. Weird, since I planted mustard seed to fumigate the soil!

Yep, one tomato had the mustard type seeds at the base of the stem.  Also, white growth right at the soil line.  The beans had the white growth at the soil line but no mustard like seeds at the base.  But the extension office said they both had southern blight.
