Tomatoe Blight.

I was reading several days ago that someone was wondering about tomatoes dying. An AP news article in our local Va paper stated that a voracious tomatoe virus is spreading across gardens and fields in Eastern Va. The virus is spread by the thrip, a bug that looks like a bright orange miniature housefly. There is no hope for plants affected. I talked with friends in NC and they also described a similar problem in the area.

I use copper sulfate at the rate of 2# per/acer of plants It seems to help the plants recover

You can also spray the plants with soapy water.
