Late blight is a disease that is very dangerous for nightshades and can completely ruin the entire tomato crop. The fight against late blight has been going on for many years, just exactly as long as a person cultivates this culture.

Agricultural technicians and breeders are constantly working to find ways to get rid of this fungal disease forever. There are many not only chemical ways to combat this microscopic fungus, but also folk remedies. As a result of selection, varieties resistant to late blight appeared. We will tell you which tomatoes do not get late blight, show a photo with the names of the seeds of the best varieties for Bashkiria, the Moscow region, the Leningrad region.

The danger of late blight

Phytophthora affects the leaves, fruits of plants of the Solanaceae family, brown spots appear on them. The fungus infects all plants very quickly under favorable conditions.

As for the fruit of a tomato, when it is affected by late blight, a gray seal appears on it, which eventually spreads to the entire fruit strongly, deforming it, while the smell of the tomato becomes unpleasant, putrid.

Attention! It is very difficult to determine the appearance of a fungus on a plant at the first stage. Take a close look at the inside of the tomato leaves and if there is a gray powdery bloom on it, then it's time to start the fight.

The danger of phytophthora for any plant is that the spores are very tenacious and quickly adapt to chemicals. As a result, it may happen that none of the drugs will help in the fight against the disease, and the crop completely dies.

Phytophthora spores can be stored in the ground, in a greenhouse structure, in garden tools. Disputes can start to grow and develop rapidly when:

  • lowering temperatures in summer;
  • poor ventilation of plants;
  • high humidity;
  • applying a large amount of nitrogen as fertilizer;
  • excessive watering.

Tomatoes that do not suffer from this disease - true or myth?

It should be said right away that there is no culture that is completely resistant to gray rot. But there are hybrids that are obtained by selection and have maximum resistance to late blight.

Besides if you plant early varieties of tomatoes, you can avoid infection with the fungusas it develops in warm, humid conditions that begin in late July. Therefore, it is better to choose varieties that quickly and amicably yield the harvest before this time.

Consider what types of tomatoes are ways to successfully resist the disease.
