Over a period of 7 years the efficiency of serological tests for tomato aspermy virus in chrysanthemums was considerably increased, compared with the inoculation test using Samsun tobacco as indicator. Tomato aspermy virus could be eliminated by heat treatment and tip culture, followed by serological testing. The B virus, however, was not eliminated by these measures.
