Anormal Growth

Asked July 21, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

This year all my tomatoes are displaying an unusual growth pattern. There leaves look all deformed, some of them turning into ball shapes. They are planted in a container that has Fertiloam Potting Mix. There are some that are planted in the back yard in normal soil that are doing the same thing. They all came from the same Nursery. They are all stunted. What is happening?

Have you used any herbicides nearby or in the bed? Tomatoes are very susceptible to herbicide damage. We have seen a lot of viral issues this year too but this looks more like herbicide damage. Usually they will grow out of it if it doesn't kill them.

Let me know if you have other questions. susan.carter@colostate.edu
