About Potato virus Y

Potato virus Y (potyvirus) is commonly found in potato crops. Symptoms vary widely between virus strain and potato variety. Most common symptoms seen in the field will be due to secondary (tuber-borne) infection and include stunting, leaf mottling, crinkling, yellowing and necrosis. Primary (current season) infection usually has mild symptoms or none at all. PVY can also infect pepper/chilli (Capsicum spp), tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) and tomato (Solanum lycopersicum).

Be aware that PVY features on the UK Plant Health Risk Register.
