Abstract: Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) has become a major pest in peanut and other crops in North Carolina and Virginia over the past few years. Incidence and damage in peanuts was the highest in recorded history in both states during 2002. Research is underway to develop
strategies to deal with this virus on peanuts. While this Advisory will not tell you how much tomato spotted wilt virus you will have in a particular field, it will help you select and implement practices that minimize damage from TSWV.
