Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) is one of the most economically important tomato diseases in the UK. AHDB-funded project PE 025 utilised new molecular assays that can discriminate three PepMV strains in order to increase understanding of symptom severity and further examine disease persistence. This factsheet provides new results on strains present in UK crops, PepMV symptoms, survival of the virus in roots and composted tomato waste, potential locations of contamination after an outbreak and occurrence of the virus in water.
