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.
When sending plant pathogens and invertebrate samples from outside England and Wales for testing please email the Crop health team (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will issue you with the relevant Letter of Authority to ensure your samples are not delayed upon entry to the UK.
