Tomato mosaic virus can be found dormant in tomato seeds, and with few tomato species providing resistance to this disease.
We can also test plant material for Tomato Mosaic Virus by ELISA which costs £135 + VAT.
Symptoms of this disease include leaves of affected tomato plants showing mottling and young leaves may be twisted. Plants with ToMV have fruit which may be distorted, with necrotic spots.
When sending plant pathogens and invertebrate samples from outside England and Wales for testing please email the Crop health team (email@example.com) who will issue you with the relevant Letter of Authority to ensure your samples are not delayed upon entry to the UK.
When submitting your sample please follow the guidelines outlined within our sample shipping information.
The relevant signed sample submission form must be included (in a separate bag if sample is damp); failure to send a sample submission form may result in a delay of your sample being tested and make diagnosis more difficult.
