Thanks, guys.

I am sad to say that I have disease issues already. I doused everything in Daconil this evening. Agatha seems to get it the worst, unfortunately. Hopefully, the Daconil will stop it from spreading further.

I think I have verticillium wilt. This stinks. I sprayed copper tonight, not that it will help much.

Dang dude. I hate that and feel your pain. I had something like that kill 75% of my plants last year. If it happens again grow bags here I come.

Everything I read says "plant resistant varieties." That doesn't help me much at this point. I have a few Mountain Fresh, which are resistant. The plants look great, but hardly have any fruit on them. My one Rebelski plant is also listed as resistant. It looks ok. My Mat-Su don't seem to have wilt, yet. It's hard to tell if it is resistant, though, as the disease seems to occupy certain spots in my rows and not others.

Next year, I will have to either switch to growing more hybrids, or get into grafting.

Definitely no cure, as far as I know. The prevention is to plant resistant varieties.

It may be fusarium wilt, as I have a hard time telling it from veticillium.

http://www.tomatodirt.com/verticillium-wilt.html

When compared with fusarium wilt. Verticillium develops more slowly than fusarium wilt. Yellowing is less dramatic with verticillium and encircles the entire plant, while those infected with fusarium tend to show symptoms just on one side. Interior stem discoloration extends just 10-12 inches high in tomatoes infected with verticillium wilt, but all the way up the stem in those infected with fusarium wilt.

I pulled out about 1/3 of my plants just now. It's not a total loss. The rest look like they will produce.

My Rebelski fruit look picture perfect:
