Pepino mosaic virus: what do we know so far and how to proceed

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingAbstractAcademic

    Abstract

    Pepino mosaic virus is a typical example of how a ‘new’ plant virus can cause major problems worldwide in a very short period of time. After its first scientific description in 1980 it was not reported until it suddenly appeared in the beginning of 1999 in indoor tomato crops in the UK and the Netherlands. Since then it has spread very rapidly and is causing sometimes severe problems in tomato production. Reports on symptom severity and economic effects of the virus were conflicting and initially believed to be related to particular virus strains. More detailed research has now learned that there are mild and severe isolates within each PepMV strain
