Plant Disease 94 (11), 1376-1376
Abstract: During 2009, tomato plants (Solanum lycopersicum) grown in California, U.S.A. were observed with symptoms of stunting (short internodes) as well as foliar distortion, chlorosis, and scattered necrotic spotting. The presence of Potato spindle tuber viroid was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using PCR analysis and nucleotide sequencing.
