The article focuses on the U.S. tobacco growers in relation to their preparation of overcoming the problem of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), one of the plant diseases. In recent years, the virus has damaged as much as half of the state's crop, and most growers routinely prepare for infestation levels of at least 20 to 30 percent. It's difficult if not impossible to predict the level of TSWV incidence this year, but there are some indicators that might provide clues to growers, says J. Michael Moore, University of Georgia Extension tobacco specialist.
