Abstract

Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV) was detected in Germany for the fi rst time in 2018 and was classifi ed as quarantine pathogen. The virus is easily transmissible by mechanical means which can lead to rapid spread within greenhouses and/or production sites. Infected plant material should therefore be destroyed.
