The potential of lucerne (Medicago sativa) as a summer reservoir of viruses of importance to the Australian winter pulse industry was explored by surveying 25 lucerne fields in northern NSW. Plant samples were tested for the presence of seven viruses and three virus groups using Tissue blot immunoassay (TBIA). Alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV) was found in all but one field and reached very high incidences in older stands. Variable incidences of Bean leafroll virus (BLRV) were identified in over half… CONTINUE READING
