A new Tomato yellow leaf curl virus strain in southern Spain
Plant Disease 87 (8), 1004-1004
Abstract: Tomato yellow leaf curl Sardinia virus has been reported from Spain since 1992. During 2002, tomato plants tolerant to Tomato yellow leaf curl disease and grown in Spain were observed with symptoms of shortened internodes, curling of leaflet margins, and leaf blade reduction. The presence of a Tomato yellow leaf curl virus was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using PCR analysis. Subsequent sequence analysis showed 97.9% identity to a TYLCV strain previously reported in Israel (X15656).
