Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Tomato plants with symptoms of a tospovirus infection were observed in south Florida from November 2009 through February 2010. Serological testing confirmed the presence of a tospovirus and molecular tests including PCR and sequencing were used to confirm the presence of Groundnut ringspot virus (GRSV). This is the first time that GRSV has been reported in the U.S.
