First report of Potato spindle tuber viroid naturally infecting greenhouse tomatoes in North Carolina
Plant Disease 97 (1), 148-148
Abstract: During 2012, tomato plants (Solanum lycopersicum) grown in western North Carolina, U.S.A. were observed with symptoms of leaf curling, rough puckered darker green texture and pale green leaf margins. Older leaves (and sometimes fruits) developed necrosis and plants were stunted, bearing small fruits. The presence of Potato spindle tuber viroid was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using PCR analysis and nucleotide sequencing.
