About TPP

TPPΒ is a plant pest which feeds on tomato, potato, capsicum, chilli, goji berry, tamarillo, eggplant and sweet potato, leading to a loss of plant vigor and yield. The weeds nightshade, groundcherry, matrimony vine and field bindweed are also hosts of the pest.

For more information about TPP, including its signs and symptoms, see this factsheet produced by DPIRD WA.
