Interpretive Summary: Groundnut ringspot virus and Tomato chlorotic spot virus have been recently detected for the first time in the U.S. This has implications for vegetable production.

Technical Abstract: Host and geographic ranges, genetic diversity and thrips transmission of Groundnut ringspot virus and Tomato chlorotic spot virus isolates from the U.S. were characterized. This report provides an overview of these viruses for growers, extension workers, crop consultants and research and regulatory scientists.
