TYLCV found in northeast Victoria, Australia

The Australian horticultural industry is encouraged to report any tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) symptoms in tomatoes following the detection of the virus in northeast Victoria. 

"TYLCV is a significant disease complex of tomato and can infect many other host species. It is reported to cause severe damage to plant leaves resulting in an eventual reduction in crop yield," industry body AusVeg says. "TYLCV is most obvious in the foliage of the plant. Typical symptoms include leaves curl and discoloration, and necrosis around the veins in the leaf’s surface." 

They encourage growers to report any TYLCV or other unusual plant pests or diseases immediately to the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline 1800 084 881. "Alternatively, you can make a report via email with a photo (where possible) to plant.protection@agriculture.vic.gov.au."
