Q.Brown Spots on Eggplant Seedlings – Why and How Do I Treat?

jmar21144 added on May 14, 2011 | Answered

My eggplant seedlings have brown spots on the leaves. The spots eventually creat holes in the leaves giving them a lacy look. Then the leaves shrivel and die. What could be causing this and how do I treat it?

This is a fungus. There are several that it could be but they are all treated the same way. Use a fungicide on the seedlings. It will kill the fungus and the plants should recover.
