Viruses of lettuce


Leaflet, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, UK (916): 8
Viruses of lettuce
At least 12 viruses affect lettuce in the United Kingdom, the commonest being lettuce mosaic virus (LMV) and cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). These and other viruses of lesser importance are aphid-borne; Myzus persicae is the most efficient vector of both LMV and CMV, while Nasonovia ribisnigri can transmit the latter but not the former. Other viruses have different insect vectors or are spread in the soil by nematodes or fungi.
