In the Southern United States, tomato leaf mold can cause severe defoliation and yield losses to tomatoes produced in the field, especially during the spring and early summer. Remedies for a Tomato Plant With Gray Mold. Botrytis cinerea, the disease known as gray mold, strikes a range of perennials and annuals as a distinctively velvety, gray growth. On tomatoes.

      Management of leaf mold begins with recognizing early symptoms, applying preventative fungicides, and removing all infected plant material from the field, greenhouse, or high tunnel, and crop rotation. Protectant fungicides such as chlorothalonil used in weekly protectant spray programs will help control leaf mold. Leaf Mold Leaf mold is caused by the fungus, Fulvia fulva and only affects tomatoes. In Connecticut, it is primarily a problem in greenhouses. Leaf mold symptoms typically appear on older leaves first. On the upper leaf surface symptoms appear as a series of randomly File Size: 1MB.

However, some resistant varieties are not listed as such and variability in the fungus population may overcome the tomato plant’s resistance. Other management optionsFile Size: KB. Cultural control.

Leaf mold can be kept under control if ventilation is ample and air circulation good in the houses. Maintain temperature at 60°F to 65°F, at least. Heat at night, when outside air drops below 60°F, to control humidity increases that come with lower outside air temperatures.

The leaf mold pathogen can survive on and in tomato seed and may be introduced to a new area by this route. Spores of P. fulva can start an infection at a wide range of temperatures. Relative humidity at or above 85 % will favor severe leaf mold epidemics.

Treatment and Control of Leaf Mold Upon noticing the infected areas, the first step is to let the plants air out and dry. If they are being cultivated in a greenhouse, expose them to dry air conditions, because the humidity that the fungus needs to survive and thrive is dried up in the open air.

Tomato leaf mold is a fungal disease that can develop when there are extended periods of leaf wetness and the relative humidity is high (greater than 85 percent).

Due to this moisture requirement, the disease is seen primarily in hoophouses and greenhouses. Control: Fungus is spread is by wind currents. High humidity and warm temperatures encourage mold growth. The problem is especially severe in greenhouses, where adequate ventilation and air movement reduce disease severity by lowering moisture at the leaf surface.
