Tomato blight fear

This article was originally published in Foodnews

LATE Blight, a particularly virulent fungoid pest, is threatening tomato crops in Indiana, the USA's second-largest producer of processing tomatoes. Late Blight destroys every tomato plant it comes in contact with and its spread has been exacerbated by the cool, wet summer. Experts are advising growers to remove plants around infected ones even if they do not look sick. Late Blight can live in the ground for years so tomatoes should be planted in a different spot next year.
