Why do tomato leaves fade?

Tomato leaves wiltSuch a vegetable as a tomato can be seen on the plots of many gardeners. Tomato is loved by many, but it is quite a capricious culture, requiring good conditions for care. At the moment, there are quite a few hybrid forms of the plant under consideration in the world selection. They can yield in unfavorable weather conditions, but the taste qualities of the fruit allow one to wish for better.

In the process of the development of crops, many vegetable growers face the problem of yellowing or withering of the above-ground part of the bush, first it appears on the leaves, and then they begin to dry out and shoots. In most cases, such a tomato reaction occurs through a lack of moisture in the soil, but there are times when watering makes the situation more critical. In the article, let's look at why tomato leaves wilt.

Delays in the development of plants can cause damage to the root system, and especially at the time of transplantation to a new location. During the stretching of the plant, the lower part of the stem is folded into a ring and buried into the ground. After carrying out a similar operation, new roots are formed in the underground part of the plant, which will contribute to the rapid restoration of tomato. During rooting, tomato leaves can turn yellow and fall, but the green top indicates the plant's ability to further develop.

Diseases of tomato leaves can cause a deficiency or excessive saturation of the soil with useful substances, as a result of which the leaves of tomatoes wither:

  • Many truck farmers on the site for tomatoes make fresh manure, from autumn, and during vegetation the plants spend their feeding with a liquid solution of the mullein. After carrying out such procedures, the soil is supersaturated with ammonia, and the culture begins to ache - leaves are twisted, fruits are damaged;
  • Supersaturation with nitrogen can be determined by thickening the stem of the tomato and a significant number of lateral shoots. To get out of this situation, you need to water plants with a solution of ash (a glass of substance per 10 liters of water);
  • Twisting and yellowing of tomato leaves may indicate a shortage of potassium in the soil;
  • The phosphorus deficit is noticeable by the appearance of violet and red veins on the surface of leaves;
  • Disease of tomatoes can cause a lack of copper.

In addition to deficiency or saturation of the soil with useful substances, the fact that tomato leaves wilt can be affected by fusarial wilt. The disease has the following symptoms:

  • Wilting of the upper shoots;
  • Change of color of leaves from green to yellow;
  • Twisting and falling off of a leaf plate;
  • The formation of a pink raid on the stem of the plant near the surface of the earth.

Various chemical preparations are used to treat fusariosis.
