Pepper diseases

Zone Clyde, Ohio zone 5 | cathy.medley77 added on May 25, 2018 | Answered

The last two years, we have gotten something called "mosaic disease" on most of our pepper plants - and maybe some of our tomato plants. We are going to plant this weekend, and are wondering if there is anything we can do to stop this? Last year was almost a total loss as far as peppers go! We don't have any pictures from last year.

Oh no... TMV is a permanent virus in the soil, and will not be cured. You will have to keep testing locations until there is no positive reading of the virus. Every season that you plant into this soil will get worse, until nothing will grow there... Well at least not anything susceptible to TMV.
