ABSTRACT
What researchers don't know about tomato spotted wilt virus is a lot, says Alex Csinos, University of Georgia research pathologist, but they continue to learn more each year. "We think the disease is complicated by many factors," said Csinos during this year's Georgia Tobacco Tour. "Just about anything you can think of has something to do with tomato spotted wilt virus in some fashion." Researchers believe, he says, that the severity of the virus is affected by weather conditions. "Weather conditions affect not only the development of virus symptoms on the plant, but they also affect the development of thrips, the insects that transmit the disease to tobacco plants," says Csinos.
