Further details about the presence of Chrysanthemum stem necrosis tospovirus
The NPPO of Slovenia recently informed the EPPO Secretariat about the current situation of Chrysanthemum stem necrosis tospovirus (CSNV – EPPO A1 list). In 2001, CSNV was detected in 23 samples of Chrysanthemum and in 2002 in 1 sample of Gerbera (see EPPO RS 2003/041). The identity of CSNV was confirmed by ELISA, different test plants and PCR. Infected plants were destroyed by incineration. In 2003, CSNV was not detected.
The status of CSNV in Slovenia is declared as follows: Present, found in 2001 and 2002 on Chrysanthemum and Gerbera plants, under official control.
