Re: QUESTION: Tomato Problem....

I wanted to add this as I've experienced the same thing. There are several things that will come up when you search under "physiologic leaf curl". The way I determined it is only a water stress situation and not a virus or other problem is that I closely monitored the water level of the soil. New leaf growth with the right level of watering will look better and the curled, stunted leaves will unroll a bit. They will not ever look the way a "regular" leaf looks, but it does not hurt the production.

One of the things that came up was a copper deficiency. If the soil was well prepared prior to planting, there should be enough copper, BUT they has to be enough water to make that copper soluble for the plant. I increased my watering a smidge and then feed them lightly with a macro and micro nutrients. Good luck!
