Tomato Plants

What do you reccommend to use on tomatoe plants once they have developed early blight?

I just noticed it on a couple of the plants. I have removed those leaves on the plants along with any limbs close to the ground. The conditions here are humid, hot and a bit rainy so I'm sure that is adding to it. Is there a way to prevent it all together? I deal with this every year. Thanks!

It can be hard to prevent, fully, but you can help. Dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur will provide a few nutrients for common deficiencies, but will also kill many infections present within the soil. It will be best to do this at least once or twice per year.

You may want to also take a sample of soil up to your local extension service. They may be able to help further. This link will help you to find the closest one to you:
