Why Are My Tomato Plants Turning Yellow?

noel added on June 2, 2011 | Answered

We bought the plants and they were perfectly healthy and then we transplanted them. The next day I could tell that they were not looking so good. Could they be in shock from being transplanted? What can I do to fix this problem? I have already ruled out pests and animals. They have been in the ground for 10 days and they are still alive and the bottoms are yellow.

I would increasing watering. The first week or so a plant is in the ground, they need alot more water than usual. You might even want to water daily for a week or so to get them acclimated. This article will help:
