Plan to eliminate ToBRFV published

The Nederlandse Voedsel- en Warenautoriteit (Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority) has published a plan of action to eliminate the persistent Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus at an infected cultivation site.

According to the latest official figures as of 1 June 2022, 41 growers in the Netherlands are infected. By far, the most infections are in the municipality of Westland. A total of 57 growers have faced infection since the first outbreak in mid-2019. Only 12 growers managed to eliminate the virus, of which another two had to deal with a new virus introduction regardless.

In Belgium, at least 15 growers have already faced an infection.
