Infected seed is the primary way of introducing lettuce mosaic to fields. LMV can also be vectored by aphids, which spread the virus within a lettuce field and can also introduce the virus into lettuce fields from infected weeds and crops outside the field.

This is a latent test to confirm presence or absence of Lettuce mosaic virus in seed stocks.

We can also test plant material for Lettuce mosaic virus for £135 + VAT per sample.
