Plant Disease 91 (8), 1054-1054
Abstract: During 2006, two tomato plants plants grown in western Poland were observed with symptoms of dwarfing, twisting of shoots and leaves, and virescence and phyllody of flowers. Total DNA was extracted from symptomatic and asymptomatic plants and analyzed by PCR using phytoplasma specific primers. Subsequent 16S rDNA examination showed the presence in the symptomatic plants of a phytoplasma belonging to the 16Srl-C subgroup.
