Hello,

I have lost several of my tomato plants this season. They start off wilting as though it is a watering issue, but ultimately shrivel up. Each of them has this same stem issue right below the dirt line. Could this be a bacterial or fungal issue?

Thank you.

Are they in the ground or in containers? Have you fertilized them? Are they getting enough water? Sorry for all the questions but this will help us to help you Green Grin!

They are in the ground (raised bed), organically fertilized (Fox Farms for Tomatoes) and watered every 1-2 days depending on weather.
