Tomato pith necrosis

Caused by a bacterium in the soil called pseudomonas, it attacks only tomatoes and expressed as brown /black lesions on infected stems and petioles.

When stems are cut, the center of the stem (pith) may be extensively discolored, hollow, or degraded, causing wilt.

It mainly attacks plants that are growing vigorously because of excessive levels of nitrogen.

Cloudy, cool weather and high tunnels provide ideal conditions for this bacterium.

Copper fungicides are not able to provide control because this soil-borne bacterial pathogen is inside the plant. however, they can minimize the spread of the bacterium from plant to plant.
