Rapid Pest Risk Analysis for: Tomato torrado virus


This rapid PRA shows: Symptoms of Tomato torrado virus (ToTV) were first seen in Spain in the early 2000s, and the virus was formally described in 2007. The main economic host is tomatoes, on which most impacts have been seen, and the host upon which most research has been carried out. However, ToTV can infect a number of other hosts within the Solanaceae, as well as non-solanaceous weed hosts. ToTV is now present in limited parts of Europe, Panama, Colombia and southern Australia. This virus is vectored by three species of whitefly, including glasshouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariorum), which is widespread in protected cultivation in the UK and Europe. Other (potential) means of ToTV transmission currently have less evidence to support them, and there is considerable uncertainty about which pathways have allowed ToTV to spread to new countries
