    OK,I have read about the tomato diseases on this thread but nothing seems to work. I was wondering how do tomato growers do it when they grow a lot more tomatoes than we do? Any ideas?

    What disease are you having trouble with? What breed of tomato are you trying to grow? You cant try growing a resistant breed which is what the commercial guys do.

    Try this link, there are a nice selection of cultivars that may work for you.

    Also if you use tobacco don't do it in your garden and wash hands before handling plants to help prevent tobacco mosaic. Rotate the plants so they don't grow in the same soil for 3 years.
