Rapid Pest Risk Analysis (PRA) for: Chilli veinal mottle virus


Chilli veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV) is a Potyvirus that is widespread in Asia and infects solanaceous hosts, including pepper, tobacco and tomato.  Infection by  this virus is one of the limiting factors in the production of chilli pepper plants  worldwide . ChiVMV is spread by grafting, mechanical transmission and aphid vectors, including aphid species that are present in the UK. It is expected that this virus could establish in the UK, since hosts of this virus are produced commercially as well as being present in the wild.
