Reducing Losses to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus in Tobacco

Year Funded

2005

Amount

$75,025

Project will develop the knowledge and management tools necessary to reduce losses to the tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) in tobacco. The project’s goal is to develop a system to predict the likelihood that damaging levels of TSWV will occur each year over locations in order to provide growers information on which to base their management practices and reduce losses. This information will be distributed to all NC tobacco farmers.
