Answer: Verticillium wilt and fusarium wilt both effect tomatoes. They are soil-borne diseases that show up as yellow leaves, wilting and death of the plant. Once infected, the plant will probably die. The best prevention is to rotate your crops to different parts of the garden so plant-specific diseases have a difficult time taking hold, and to plant resistant varieties, which will have the letters V and/or F after the variety name. Read catalog descriptions or seed packets or plant labels to find the most disease resistant varieties you can. Good luck with your tomatoes!
