Summary of the Express Pest Risk Analysis for Tomato yellow ring virus


Tomato yellow ring virus may cause serious losses in cultivations of tomato, potato, ornamental plants. Virus transfer easily in mechanical way. Therefore there is high risk that the virus may be delivered unconsciously over and beetween crops (especially when infections are asymptomatic)

Additionally, risk of TYRV spread increases if vectors (Frankliniella occidentalis and Thrips tabaci) occur.

Virus was detected in Poland in tomato crops (during one vegetation cycle) (Zarzyńska-Nowak et. al 2016). Probably, virus was transfered to Poland with tomato seedlings. There is no more information of virus occurence in PRA area.

TYRV has broad host range but was reported in most cases in tomato crops along with Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV).
