Recent surveys of commercial Rubus crops in the UK have shown a large increase in the incidence of the pollen-borne raspberry bushy dwarf virus (RBDV). Much of this is attributable to the widespread displacement in commerce of RBDV-immune cultivar...

Of these, 15 occur in the UK, among which 6 are transmitted by soil-inhabiti...
