I just got a report of tomato blight in western North Carolina. This is serious stuff so watch your matters closely.

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

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
