Tulip break

The petals of infected tulips produce irregular coloured streaks and may appear distorted. Leaves may become light green, and plants become stunted after several years' infection. The virus is spread mechanically by knives, while three aphid vectors are known: the bulb aphid in stores, the melon aphid in greenhouses, and the peach-potato aphid outdoors and in greenhouses.

Preventative control must be used against this disease. Removal of infected plants in the field prevents a source of virus for aphid transmission. Aphid control in field, store and greenhouse further reduces the virus's spread.
