A new epiphytotic model of the tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) has been offered. The ways of TSWV circulation in nature have been established. For the first time a possibility of the pathogene transmission by weeds, seed and pollen has been shown , which is significant for the appearance of the viral epiphytoty caused by TSWV and can be the source of its expansion. The methods of control of the seed viral infection of sunflower have been offered.
