EMERGING VIRAL DISEASES IN TOMATOES AND CUCURBITS: IMPLEMENTATION OF MITIGATION STRATEGIES FOR DURABLE DISEASE MANAGEMENT

Project description

Novel solutions to containing viral diseases in crops

Every year, several billion euro worth of vegetable crops are lost due to viral diseases and the emergence of new viruses in European fields and greenhouses. Furthermore, viral diseases also lead to the extensive use of pesticides, thereby exposing European growers and consumers to pesticide residues. The EU-funded VIRTIGATION project will address this challenge, developing solutions to emerging viral diseases caused by begomoviruses (whitefly-transmitted) and tobamoviruses (mechanically transmitted) in cucurbits and tomatoes in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. The initiative will also take into account the diversity of vegetable cropping systems and viral diseases through focus groups involving extension services, commercial companies and growers to help co-design research activities and mitigation strategies from the onset of the project.
