Tomato blooms being ‘cut’ off

Zone Zone 7 | maldavis added on July 5, 2016 | Answered

Some of my tomato plants' blooms have been 'cut' off. The stem of the bloom is still intact on the plant, but the blooms are either missing or on the ground. It's like someone took a pair of scissors to them. Can you help me? Do you have suggestions as to what I can do to prevent this from continuing? I'm in Northeast Arkansas. Thank you!

Blossom drop can be due to pests, disease, lack of pollination or even environmental stress.
Keep the soil evenly moist to reduce water stress to the plants.
Inspect the plants for any signs of pest or disease.
