I've got Verticillium on my eggplants :(

Slimy_Okra(2b)August 10, 2012

I think so anyway. I've got all the classic symptoms - yellowing lower leaves on all my plants, and wilting on one side of the plant (the latter on 3 out of 100 plants so far). I've been watering and fertilizing appropriately, I think.

The odd thing is the yellow leaves started a month ago, so the disease is progressing rather slowly (assuming my diagnosis is correct). This is a loamy, well drained, fertile soil.

Do you think I'm going to lose all my plants? The growing season will end in 4-5 weeks anyway.

Please post pictures. Overall of planting. And individual plants.

Please explain what you mean when you say "I've been watering and fertilizing appropriately, I think."

how water?
how often?
How long?
by what method?
how do you determine to water again?
and whatever else you can think of.
