Why have my tomato plants got yellow patches in the leaves?



The most likely cause is magnesium deficiency. The leaves turn yellow but the green veins remain on the leaves. The treatment is epsom salts diluted with water used as either a feed or a foliar spray. You can buy epsom salts from the garden centres and the dilution will be on the pack.
