Latices tapped from Ficus elastica, F. nitida and Euphorbia pulcherrimia plants were screened for antiviral activity against some plant viruses in different hosts.

Two systemic infections, squash-zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV); broad bean-bean yellow mosaic virus (BYMV) and the third one, bean-tobacco necrosis virus (TNV) as local infection. The greatest degree of antiviral activity observed when the latex of F. nitida was mixed with either… Expand
