  • Araujia mosaic virus (ArjMV) has previously been confirmed to have a narrow host range and is considered a potential biological control agent for moth plant (Araujia hortorum), a troublesome environmental weed in northern regions of New Zealand. In this study, the virus was tested on 14 plant species, including species of importance to New Zealand to explore its possible use as a biocontrol agent for moth plant. Mosaic symptoms and occasional distortion were observed on leaves of the three… CONTINUE READING
