    Research results show that the tomato disease caused by Pepino mosaic virus can be transmitted from tomato seeds to tomato plants. The result is lower yield and discoloured tomatoes ... This conclusive indication of seed transmission of PepMV, although at a low level, will be included in the risk assessment of PepMV and be one of PEPEIRA¿s main outcomes. The results will be used in future evaluations by EU plant health authorities on how to control PepMV infection, says Steen Lykke Nielsen
