Growing tomatoes when crop rotation is not possible

Asked September 8, 2017, 1:00 PM EDT

When lack of space makes it impossible to rotate crops, how can I ensure good tomato production in subsequent years? How should I amend the soil? What can be done to prevent any blight, bacteria, etc.?
Thank you.

Great questions! I'm including a link to a document that's part of the Master Gardener curriculum - 8 pages just on growing tomatoes here on the Front Range. This research-based information will cover the different areas of concern, and more. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/mg/Gardennotes/717.pdf

We also have a fact sheet on recognizing tomato problems should you ever need it: http://extension.colostate.edu/docs/pubs/garden/02949.pdf

Best of luck,
