Comments
EPPO EPPO Reporting Service (2020/058) : the earlier record appearing in the database was based on a misinterpretation of a paper from Mickovksi (1969) which described the detection of another virus (Tomato spotted wilt virus) in tobacco. The NPPO officially confirmed that all subsequent studies on tobacco viruses have not detected TRSV in Serbia.
