One of the most common diseases of tomato crops in our country, spotted wilt, is caused by Tospovirus. It can affect the various parts of the plant and each part could show a different symptom as well. They can affect the growth of the plant, damage the produce or could be fatal as well.
Tospovirus infections on tomato leaves will cause them to look pale yellow or brownish with fungal spots and smaller in size. The fruits formed will be discoloured with yellow rings and differently shaped as well. All of these could lead to a huge loss for the farmers as it can affect the market price of the produce.
