Virocid® efficacious against TBRFV

Virocid® efficacious against  the Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (TBRFV)


The worldwide tomato industry has recently be affected by a new virus: TBRFV.

It is related to the Tomato Mosaic Virus (on what we already had a test) and shows symptoms similar to the Pepino virus (for which Virocid has been tested as well). There is apparently no resistance against the new TBRFV.

The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) has tested several disinfectants, of which Virocid came out as the best : a log 4 reduction was observed at a  dilution of 0.5% ( 1:200 or 5 ml/L or 2/3 oz/gal) within  1 minute contact time.
