There are over 100 tomato viruses affecting crops worldwide. These can result in significant challenges to crop quality and yield. Symptoms can include a range of mosaic patterns on leaves, stunted growth in some cases and discoloured fruit.

Tests can identify a range of common viruses on symptomatic plants or leaves.

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