Effects of too much rains on tomatoes

Tomatoes planted in wet season when there is too much rain normally get rotten from the garden before they are ready to be harvested, the leaves also get rotten unlike those planted in swampy areas in the dry season where there is very little or no rains. What causes this and how can we minimise the problem?

Tomato blight: can it be cured with milk?

I have been asked to post a question from Malawi.

Is it true that to kill blight on tomatoes you can use milk instead of expensive fungicide?  If it's true, what is it in the milk that makes it kill the blight?






Tomato disease: leaves wither, plants die, easily transferred

This question is from farmers of the Kole district, Alito sub county, Okwerodot parish.  It comes via the Okole Women Development Initiative in Uganda. 

They want a solution to a disease that is destroying their tomatoes. The leaves dry up  and turn dark brown in colour, the tomatoes wither, then plants die off. They say if they  use the same tools e.g pangas, hoes the disease is transferred to the next garden.
