Such data will be used to develop an Integrated Disease Management protocol specific for the Piedmont area. Furthermore other important virus diseases for vegetable crops in Piedmont will be monitored: among them, the presence of Pepino mosaic virus, Potato spindle tuber viroid, and resistance breaking strains of Tomato spotted wilt virus.
