Hi GG,

My tomato plants, which are almost flowering stage are developing curly leaves. I have sprayed Bavistin. Is it OK?  I am confused. Or you suggest something more effective. SOS

Hello Totalview,

Leaf curl could be due to virus attack or deficiency. Leaf are curled upwards or downwards?
Bavistin is a fungicide. It might not help control the vectors that cause Leaf Curl. Do you see whiteflies in your plant?

I think it is leaf curl virus. You can discard the plant if you dont want this to spread to other plants. But if they plant is too big then you can just leave it. It might recover.
