Within the last 2 weeks my thriving tomato plants have started to turn not dying brown but a coppery color on the ends of the leaves and then they proceed to curl upward and croak. They have stopped producing viable blooms these also turn brown and fall off before they set. Each plant has 3-4 nice green tomatos on and I sprayed them with rot stop yesterday which seems to have made matters WORSE! Please help don't want to lose these beautiful beefsteaks.

Are the affected leaves the older ones or the younger ones?
You may find an answer on this page.
Scroll down and take a look at the fotos and read the pertinent info.
If this doesn't give you the answer, try on here. though it sounds like more of a deficiency than a disease.
If still no joy, can you take a foto of the affected leaves and post it on here for comments.

Ok I looked at the pics and it doesn't seem to look like any of those. The problem started on the top leaves of the plant and is working it;s way down. There are no problems with the existing tomatoes they continue to grow no spots no rings. The leaves turn a rusty color on the ends first then they begin to curl then the middle of the leaf turns yellow it completely turns brown curls up and dies. The whole tops of the plants are doing it but the new growth doesn't seem to have problems yet. I'm going to try post photos bear with me. Thank you for the info.
