I have some wilting and curling of the leaves on the lower branches of my early maters. Is that what you are talking about?

You can spray them with Daconil [ clorothalonil ] every 7 to 10 days That will help quit a bit

Last year after the fact ( too late to help anything) I purchased Dupont Manzate 200 DF the active ingredient being
Ethylene bisdithiocarbamate ion. Does anyone know anything about this.

Boss if this is a better product -- Daconil [ clorothalonil ] -- let me know and I will try to find it here.

Thanks, Tim

Mike, it starts as a small black spot on the lower leaves or on the buds before they open. If you find any of this get rid of it. Use a cup and scissors because it can be carried on your hands. I'm meeting with the County Extension Agent this morning and I'll get an update. Dan
