The ISU Survey does not collect rental data for individual farms.The number of responses is the number of individuals who provided information about typical rents across the county. A new question on the survey this year was the number of acres the respondent was familiar with, the sum of those acres was over 2.5 million acres across the state.

AMES, Iowa – Many people love tomatoes from the garden, fresh and delicious. But diseases that attack them and limit their potential are no fun to deal with.

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach horticulturists can help solve these issues and ensure a big garden tomato crop. To have additional questions answered, contact the ISU Hortline at 515-294-3108 or hortline@iastate.edu.

My tomato plants are wilting despite adequate rainfall. Why? 

A vascular wilt may be responsible for the wilting of the tomato plants. The initial symptoms of Verticillium and Fusarium wilts are wilting of the plant foliage during the heat of the day. Affected plants often recover in the evening or overnight. Gradually, however, the wilting becomes progressively worse and many plants eventually die.
