Tomato Virus Testing

THE ISSUE

Tomato viruses, such as Tomato Brown Rugose Virus (ToBRFv), are deadly diseases that cause each year billions dollars of losses world-wide. Control measures are currently very limited, forcing producers to rely on the elimination of infected plants. The routine activities in greenhouses, such as labour, contaminated tools and equipment move, can quickly spread the virus. Virus can infect many plants before symptoms could be visually detected. Thus, early Virus detection is needed
