From the Experts

Síntomas planta y fruto rugoso.png

The virus can attack at any stage or productive part of the crop. Young leaves are usually the first to show signs and symptoms of infection. Symptoms can include: discoloration, spotting, green areas with wrinkles and wilting. 

As for the fruit, discolorations also appear on the interior of the tomato as the virus dehydrates the exterior. 

Disinfection will be fundamental for the prevention of spreading the Rugose Virus. Upholding preventitive guidelines with our crop can help the industry avoid the contagion or spread of the virus.

We have provided some best practices to help with the prevention of ToBRFV spread.
