On plants of a Solanaceae family cultivated on a ground with increased concentrations of metals (Cu = 10; Pb = 21.5; Zn = 13.2 mg/kg) was shown both propagation and development depressing and decreasing of common protein. The superposition of a virus infection (TMV, PVX) results in considerable accumulation of viruses and early plants death. The contamination of soil by heavy metals results in plants propagation and development depressing, that in turn entails considerable development of viral and other infections resulting in crop losses.Keywords:
