What is wrong with my tomato plants?

Asked July 19, 2016, 3:45 PM EDT

All of my tomato plants look like this at the top and it seems to work it's way down the whole plant. There aren't many blossoms. The plant was nice and healthy looking, then all of a sudden the blossoms have died/fallen off and the leaves have shriveled and curled. No other spots on the plant. Been watering and only used a soap shield on them.

Ouch....that doesn't look very nice. The specimen has the strong appearance of herbicide damage. Drift and/or vaporization can easily transport the damaging herbicide to non-target areas. Tomatoes seem particularly sensitive to 2,4-D. Check out the following links for more info:

I hope this is helpful,
