Q&A – What is wrong with my tomato plants? The leaves are misshapen and curled?

This is herbicide damage from phenoxy herbicides. This probably happened because someone nearby used a phenoxy herbicide on their lawn and the chemical drifted to the tomatoes. It could have also occurred because the tomatoes were sprayed with a sprayer that previously contained a phenoxy herbicide.
Unfortunately, with damage this severe it is unlikely the plants will grow out of it. It is probably best to remove those plants and start over. Tomatoes are very sensitive to herbicides and will show damage before other plants.

What Causes Tomato Leaves To Curl?

Curled leaves on tomato could be a symptom of herbicide damage or a virus. Or your tomato could be suffering physiological damage from weather conditions. Amy Grisak talks about how to examine curled leaves on tomatoes, as well as how to diagnose and treat the problem.

Why are My Tomato Leaves Curling? Tomato Leaf Curl Explained

Tomato leaf curl is a very common problem that gardeners encounter. While it may be alarming, especially to new or beginner gardeners, leaf curling is just a natural response of the tomato plant to outside stimulus. There are many reasons a tomato plant may have leaf curl. Upward tomato leaf curl is not a tomato plant disease but a physiological response to outside conditions. Some reasons your tomato plants have curling leaves are dry climate, high temperatures and strong winds. These are our normal weather conditions here in the high desert. Because of this, tomato leaf curl is really common. The cause of tomato leaf curl is that the plant cannot draw up water as fast as it its lost due to the heat, humidity and wind. Plants naturally lose water due to transpiration, this is increased in high temperatures, low humidity and strong or constant winds.
The good news is that since tomato leaf curl isn't a disease there isn't anything wrong with your plant! Your plant will still grow and produce fruit just fine. You probably don't need to do anything for your plants.
There are other types of tomato leaf curl that may require intervention, but upward tomato leaf curl is nothing to worry about.

Tomato Leaf Curl - Tomato Leaf Problems - Extreme Arizona Heat Curled My Tomato Leaves

Tomato Leaf Curl Problems
In this video, I will show you what caused the leaves of my tomato plants to curl. Initially, I thought that is due to overwatering as we have had some really hot days here in Arizona. However, after I put the watering on hold, the leaves on my tomato plants did not improved. So, I did some research and I found out that if spring was mild, the tomato plants grew faster than the root system. Then, when the extreme heat hit us, the tomato plants leaves were perspiring moisture faster than the roots were absorbing it and that caused the problem.
Chances are, the leaves will not get straight again, but that will not affect the growth and production of tomatoes.
Below, I will list a few university studies related to tomato leaf curl or rolling of the tomato leaves. The articles talk about other causes of the problem such as curly top tomato disease, watering, fertilizing and different weather conditions and the signs to recognize which one of the tomato leaf problems your plants might have.

Vegetable gardening is enjoyed by many individuals around the world. Not only is it a satisfying hobby, but it also helps to produce healthy foods in your own backyard. One of the most popular foods grown at home is tomatoes, and tomato plants are said to produce fruit that is superior and more delicious than those bought in grocery stores. We all know that tomatoes are an extremely healthy fruit that offer a number of different vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, so having them in your diet is a great way to promote your overall health.

Tomatoes grown in your home garden are said to be more tasty and sweet then purchased ones. However, there is a tip that many individuals with home gardens are using to get their tomatoes even sweeter every single year. This tip utilizes easy to find, normal baking soda, which is then added to your own tomato plants!

These gardeners are sprinkling a small amount of baking soda, less than a 1/4 per plant, around the soil of the tomato plants, without getting any on the the plant itself. Some are even adding 1 tsp of baking soda per gallon of water and watering the plants this way. Sprinkle the baking soda on the soil of the plants when the tomatoes are about 1 inch in diameter, and then do this again when they are about half grown.

Why are even experienced gardeners adding baking soda to their tomato plants? It is said that the baking soda absorbs into the soil which then works to lower the acidity levels. By lowering the acidity levels in the soil, this will give the tomatoes a more sweet taste, rather than being tart.

When just beginning this clever gardening tip, be careful with young tomato plants and also try it on just one plant before you try it on your entire tomato crop. This is recommended because if your soil is already fairly alkaline, by adding the baking soda, you could be altering the soil too much, creating a less desirable fruit.

Baking soda has long been used to improve people’s gardens in many other ways as well, such as keeping cut flowers fresh longer, to control pests such as slugs and cabbage worms and also to eliminate crabgrass. Hopefully by using this tip, your tomato plants to bear delicious and great tasting fruit that you can enjoy this season and all future seasons as well.

Purple Tomato Leaves and Stems: Problem, Fix & Don't Worry -TRG 2015

Some purpling on the lower stem and on the undersides of leaves on new plants is perfectly normal and okay. Deeper purple stems up the entire stem or purple veining leaves in older transplants can be an issue. A well balanced NPK liquid fertilizer at 1/2 strength and some Epsom Salts will fix your plant and restore the green.

Brown Spots on Tomato Leaves? Leaves Turning Yellow? It Might be This!

If you notice brown spots on your tomato leaves it could be caused by a couple very common fungal issues: early blight and septora leaf spot. Early blight has some distinctive characteristics that resemble brownish gray spots on the leaves. Septora leaf spot is another issue that shows up with brown leaf spots that eventually will turn your leaves yellow. If these diseases are left untreated they will defoliate your tomato plants and reduce your tomato crops. Since both issues are fungal diseases you can treat them with the same methods!

Talked about in this video:
