The leaves on my tomato plants are turning yellow. On the higher leaves they start as tiny yellowish-white spots and on the lower leaves they are completely yellow except for the veins and turning brown. The fruits do not seem to be affected. What is causing this and how can I stop it?

Unfortunately, based on your description I am unable to make a definite diagnosis of the problem. It could be a case of fusarium, a rather serious disease that lives on in the soil, so you might want to consult with your county extension (566-0673 or 328-4800) for a definite identification of the problem. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
