Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV), a plant virus that can leave fruit unmarketable, has been detected in Hungary, national food safety authority Nébih said on Monday, according to state news wire MTI.
ToBRFV was detected in probes at two farms, one in the northwest of the country and the other in the southeast. Plant quarantine measures were introduced at both farms, and experts are working to determine the source of the infection.
Nébih noted that ToBRFV has emerged in a number of European countries since 2018. There is no effective technology against the virus.
