Tomato problems

Tomato    None Given

My tomato is producing well, well fertilized , well watered but:

1. some leaves are turning purple, does this look like calcium deficiency to you?
2. some have what looks like a disease but I can't tell what the white stuff is, it's not mildew
3. some have what looks like sun burn but its shaded in a greenhouse with a controlled temp of 24-26c ?

please help

The first image looks like a nutrient deficiency of some kind. The purpling leaves suggest that the plant is lacking in phosphorus, magnesium or perhaps nitrogen. i think nitrogen is unlikely since you are fertilizing. What kind of fertilizer are you using? Which nutrients does it contain? The last image you have provided looks like it could be a disease. could you snip off one of the leaves with the brown patches on it and upload a picture of it? That would be really helpful.

ah ok, now I see the tiny white spots on the first two images. yes, if you can get a better picture that would be helpful. I suspect that it is an insect or mite feeding on the leaves and that is what is causing the leaves to change to that purple color.

One problem that typically affects tomatoes is being root bound. The roots have grown to large in the pot and the plant is not getting any nutrients.

I agree that the last pictures look like an infectious growth. Remove and discard those leaves to be safe. But do post other pictures, higher quality with less out of focus areas
