(Garden Update Late July to present)
Grafted tomato plants are showing symptoms of Fusarium heavily at this point. Fruit production has slowed, but the fully grown tomatoes seem unaffected so far.This is the first season I have tried grafted, and I chose them for their supposed resistance to both types of Fusarium and other diseases. They have not lived up to the hype. Considering the price is significantly higher, I will never be using them again.
Heirloom Plants are showing symptoms of both Fusarium and Septoria, but less severe than the grafted plants. Fruit production is average and there are new buds, but it is likely the plant will not survive long enough to develop more fruit.
Hybrid plants are in the best shape out of all 3 types. There are symptoms of disease on a few of the lower leaves, but most of the plants are lush and green and full of fruit. With the exception of 1 plant ruined by tomato horn worm, the hybrids are quite healthy considering the soil conditions and climate.
Keep in mind the tomato varieties you choose when battling soil disease, as the outcome will be significantly different. I will update again around harvest time. Either way, I will not be using this bed for tomatoes over the next 5 years. I would rather give the soil a rest and create a new bed for them.
That said, trichoderma are predatory and I have had them turn some already infected plants around. Not all, but some. That's better than anything else is used! Now just figuring out how to get them to spore out for me :)
If you have fusarium in your soil, don't bother. This year I'm going to have to do raised beds with barriers between bought soil and our garden's soil.
