Subject: First report of tomato chlorosis crinivirus in Puerto Rico
Date posted: April 02, 2001
Source: ProMED mail
Tomato chlorosis crinivirus was recently observed for the first time in Puerto Rico, marking the first detection of a tomato crinivirus in the Caribbean. Infected tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) plants exhibiting interveinal chlorosis, necrotic flecking and rolling of the leaves were discovered in Jauna Diaz, Puerto Rico. Tomato chlorosis crinivirus can be transmitted by four different species of whiteflies, which increases its potential to spread throughout the Caribbean Basin.
