Abstract Tulip breaking virus (TBV) causes severe economic losses for the Netherlands. Infected plants must be removed from the field as soon as possible to prevent further spread by aphids. Until now screening is done by visual inspection in the field. As the availability of human experts is limited there is an urgent need for a rapid, automated and objective method of screening. Based on laboratory experiments in 2008, we developed a vision method for use in the open field. From 2009 – 2011 field trials were carried out and the techniques were tested and improved. The final score of our system in the last experiment (2011) approached the scores obtained by the human crop experts.
