In 1990 it is likely that losses from these diseases are insignificant and this is almost entirely due to the universal use of resistant cultivars. In addition to savings on lost yield, growers now spend no money on fungicides to control these diseases. Tomato mosaic (Tomato mosaic virus, ToMV). The majority of tomato cultivars commercially cultivated are resistant to ToMV, once the most common and damaging disease of the crop (Fletcher, 1973). Resistance is largely dependent upon the gene Tm-22 which is the major source of resistance in the majority of cultivars.
