March 2006

Research

The relative distribution and incidence of seven viruses commonly infecting tomato in Trinidad were determined. The results indicated that Potato yellow mosaic Trinidad virus (PYMTV) is the predominant and most important viral pathogen in tomato production systems; however, begomovirus disease management strategies will also have to accommodate control measures that target virus complexes in those areas affected by such multiple infections.
