Additional Info
Complementary Info
Type Virus
Pest Classification Is seed a pathway in this crop? Pathway not proven
Main literature references 1-8, 1-21, 1-40, 1-64, 1-65, 1-66, 1-85, 1-155, 1-202, 1-205
Remarks AMV occurs worldwide and has a very extensive host range. There is little information regarding seed as a pathway for AMV in pepper. An older reference (1-85) reports that AMV may be seedborne in pepper at a low level. Reference 1-155 is scientifically flawed and should be withdrawn from the literature. No references found clearly demonstrating seed as a pathway for AMV in pepper. Seed as a pathway is well documented in alfalfa. A quality systems approach in production of the seeds by crop inspections should reduce the chances of seed contamination.
Detection Is there a seed test? No
If yes, type of test
Main literature references
Remarks No references found indicating a seed test exists for AMV on pepper.
Risk mitigation Can the pest be managed by seed treatment(s)? No
