  • The presence of geminiviruses has been recognised in Brazil since the 1950s. In the early 1990s, after the introduction of a new biotype of the whitefly vector, successive reports of geminivirus infection indicated the establishment of these pathogens in tomato crops. Initial reports suggested that new species were emerging in different parts of the country. Further studies indicated the presence of eight novel species. Similarities between tomato-and weed-infecting viruses suggested that… CONTINUE READING
