ToBRFV belongs to the genus of the Tobamoviruses which also includes tomato mosaic virus (ToMV) and tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). The virus spreads mechanically through people and tools, but also through bumblebees, birds and infected fruits. While most of the tomato varieties have built up resistance against Tobamoviruses (such as TMV and ToMV), research has shown that the virus breaks through the resistance (Tm-2 and TM-2 2(superscript)) that most tomato varieties have against Tobamoviruses.
