My tomatoes have many green tomatoes on them. However the lower leaves are all turning brown. Can you tell me why?

In addition, I can tell you the plants are grown organically with drip irrigation. The pots you see are open on both ends to help when the plants are young. Here is a closeup of one of the plants.

So many possible reasons. Blights (early or late), lack of air circulation, bad mix of fertilizers (too little or too much), too much or too little water (and irregular too). The problems are legion.

Some close ups of the leaves would help...

All possible !

But ! Looks like normal, to me.

Although ! Pots look to shallow. They should be at least 18 inches deep. Shrug!

If. You. Think. Something is going on. Take sample's to extention office. For. ID.
