TYLCV is a significant disease complex of tomatoes and can infect many other host species.
Agriculture Victoria has released three new industry notices regarding the restricted zone movement conditions for tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV):
First of all, Interim Western Australia has now more import requirements for TYLCV material. Western Australia (WA) have allowed an interim import condition for Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV) until 15 January 2022
The interim measures end on 14 January 2022. TYLCV hosts can be certified if the property or production site has been surveyed by Agriculture Victoria within the past 6 months and found free from TYLCV. TYLCV vectors (known as Silverleaf Whitefly hosts) can
be certified if the property or production site has been
surveyed by Agriculture Victoria within the past 28 days and found free from TYLCV. More information on this measure can be found here.
Secondly, entry conditions apply to Host Plants entering New South Wales and Tasmania from the Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV) Restricted Area. In response to detections of TYLCV, Agriculture Victoria has implemented a Restricted Area to help facilitate the
movement of host materials to sensitive markets. More information can be found here.
A Restricted Area for the control of Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV) has been declared in Victoria. Unless exemptions apply, host plants, plant products or associated used packages can only be moved out of the Restricted Area under a permit issued by an
Agriculture Victoria inspector. More information can be found here.
