Viruses cause many important plant diseases and are responsible for yield and quality losses in crops in all parts of the world. No curative methods are available for infected plants and the main control strategies are cultural practices including prophylactic measures to prevent virus arrival, installation and spread into the crop or use genetic resistance to limit disease damage. Factors driving viral emergence include genetic variability of plant viruses, changes in agricultural practices, exchanges of plant material and new introduction or increase in the population of insect vectors in the environnent of the crops. In this review, we briefly describe the most important viruses emerging in economically important vegetable greenhouse crops including pepper, tomato and cucurbit species.
