PMTV produces internal and external potato tuber symptoms, seriously affecting tuber quality and reducing yield (Germundsson et al., 2002). Infection with PMTV causes some quantitative yield loss but the qualitative losses are more important and can lead to total crop rejection by supermarkets and processors (Jones and Harrison, 1972; Mumford et al., 2000).
