Biointeracties and Plant Health
Scientists of Plant Research International of Wageningen UR have identified the virus that causes great damage in tomato cultivation in Mexico where the disease is known as ‘Marchitez’, which means 'withered'. The name of the new virus is tomato marchitez virus. The virus was found to be related to the tomato torrado virus, earlier discovered by Wageningen UR. Identification of the virus now makes it possible for breeding companies to develop cultivars with resistance to the virus
