When to use V10?

V10 should be applied to newly planted tomato crops, preferably as soon as possible and the latest before the first flowers start to open. Since this is a preventative measure the V10 treatment must be applied before virulent PepMV strains infect the crop.   

How does V10 work?

Following inoculation with V10, the non-infectious PepMV strains of VC1 and VX1 become established throughout the plant. This provides the plant with a high level of protection against subsequent attempted infections by virulent PepMV strains. The development of the virus pathogen is severely compromised due to its inability to undergo RNA replication. This effect is directly attributed to the V10 plant inoculation treatment.a
