Tomato Wilt--A widespread fungal disease of tomato caused by Fusarium lycopersici, family Tuberculariaceae, or by Verticillium albo-atrum, or Pseudomonas solanacearum, family Bacteriaceae, characterized by a yellowing, upward rolling, and a wilting of the leaves.
The fungal flora was dominated by Moniliaceae, and Tuberculariaceae and Dematiaceae were absent in natural ultramafic soils.
Two genera of Dematiaceae and Tuberculariaceae (Cladosporium and Cylindrocarpon) which were not represented in the natural non-ploughed soil, were found in very small numbers on the cropped soils.
