I am the guy that develops the diagnostic tests to test your tomatoes. I am presently working on Tomato chlorosis virus and Tomato infectious chlorosis virus I need tomato plants infected with ToCV and TICV. Please contact me if you have such a thing. I will send my permit and Fedex number so you can ship them to me. 'The leaves of plants infected with ToCV become yellow or purplish between the veins, stunted, and rolled. Symptoms are typically most apparent on middle to lower parts of plants, while new growth may appear normal. Lower leaves develop a progressive, interveinal chlorosis, often with necrotic flecking. As the disease progresses, interveinal necrosis can occur and the leaves become characteristically brittle, thick, and crisp. Fruit size and number appear reduced by virus infection.' TICV infection looks similar.
