Yellow leaf curl

Tomato yellow leaf curl virus

Tomato yellow leaf curl is a disease of tomato caused by Tomato yellow leaf curl virus. In March 2007, it was identified for the first time in California and currently has a limited distribution. An educational brochure (PDF) was created at that time and is available to print.
Infected tomato plants initially show stunted and erect or upright plant growth; plants infected at an early stage of growth will show severe stunting. However, the most diagnostic symptoms are those in leaves.
