Abstract European researchers investigate the epidemiology and economic impact of Pepino mosaic virus in order to evaluate the risk posed by this pathogen to the European tomato industry. The role of UPM will be to monitor the epidemiology of PepMV in Spain. Distinct strains of pf PepMV (Pepino mosaic virus) have appeared in Europe and everywhere recently and that have the potential to be far more damaging. This fact could introduce an epidemiology and economic impact on tomato crops growing in Member States with different climatic and market condition and the role of seed transmission on the spread of PepMV. In order to evaluate the risk posed by this pathogen to the European tomato industry European scientists, from several institutions, among them the Technical University of Madrid, develop the research project PEPEIRA (Pepino mosaic virus-epidemiology, economic impact and pest risk analysis). It will address the issue of developing validated diagnostic protocols, to be published via EPPO, which can be used with confidence by national Plant Protection organizations within the EU and by laboratories in other countries that trade with the EU
