Pepino mosaic potexvirus does not occur in Sweden

A survey on Pepino mosaic potexvirus (PepMV - EPPO Alert List) was done in Sweden from March until October 2004. 24 inspections were carried out at tomato production sites and 18 samples of plants or fruits were tested. All samples were negative. It is recalled that PepMV had been found once in 2001 (see EPPO RS 2001/157), but since then no new infection has been detected. The NPPO of Sweden considers that PepMV is absent from its territory.
The status of Pepino mosaic potexvirus in Sweden is declared as follows: Absent, confirmed by survey.
