Subject: Tomato spotted wilt virus on American black nightshade (Solanum americanum) in Southeast Florida
Date posted: April 22, 2003
Source: Florida Pest Alert
Tomato spotted wilt virus was confirmed for the first time in a Southeastern Florida vegetable field on American black nightshade (Solanum americanum). This tospovirus is widespread throughout the world on hundreds of different host species, however, the detection on American black nightshade is still worth noting as this plant is a common weed found in association with field crop production systems and may serve as a reservoir host.
