Infected plants can be very stunted and distorted.

The disease is contact transmissible and can spread very rapidly causing significant crop losses, if early action is not taken to eliminate infection. PepMV can be transmitted on contaminated tools, hands, clothing, direct plant-to-plant contact, propagation (grafting, cuttings) and by seeds.

PepMV is prolific across Europe, although outbreaks have been reported across the globe. It can affect a large number of crops. These crops include potato, tomato, aubergine and a number of tobacco species.

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