Hi,

I have a couple pea plants that were very healthy last year but starting this spring has been slowly dying. There is some sort of decease that seemed to start from the middle and spreading out, consuming the plants.

Do you know what it could be from the pictures?

Thanks
Tom

Fusarium wilt causes the yellowing of pea plants' foliage, stunting and wilting of the entire plant.

Thank you for your response. That is exactly it, the Fusarium Wilt!!!

I did some research and looks like it's a pathogen that lives in the earth and at this stage there's not much that I can do about it

You can slow it. Thyme oil and garlic oil will not kill it but it hates them. Betadine in water when you spray is a contact killer. Soil sterilization efforts prior to next planting give a larger window of time to bring in some harvest.
