causing Large Black circles on my tomatoes in my garden.?

points are like those of Tom lying on the floor, but I realized today that is still in the branches above. Only at the base of the tomatoes.

The problem is called blossom end rot (BER) and is caused by lack of calcium in the fruit. When calcium reaches low levels in the tomato, the fruit simply dies in the background giving way characteristic black or brown. Calcium is present in most soils in adequate amounts. The problem is that the plant can not absorb enough calcium from their roots because of dry soil conditions. That is because calcium is absorbed by the roots along with water. If for some reason the abstraction of water is limited, the uptake of calcium stops. What can do about it? Have your soil tested to make sure they get enough calcium in the soil. If not, add limestone (if the soil acidity or pH level is lower 6.0) or gypsum. If calcium levels are adequate, the most important control measure is to maintain optimum soil moisture. When tomato plants are allowed to experience the slightest bit of water stress, which are causing REC. To maintain good soil moisture, try using a layer of straw, leaves, grass clippings or even prevent evaporation. Tomatoes need about one inch of water per week minimum. Failure to do so through the rain, water will be applied as an estimate approximate each tomato plant needs approximately 3.5 gallons of water each week. If you use a mulch, this amount may be halved. When watering, do not do lightly spray the ground. Apply water so it enters the field and moves through the soil to a depth of 8.12 inches. shallow watering encourages shallow roots only which leaves tomato plants more prone to wilt.
