'Kokke kandu' - virus disease of cardamom and its management

Planters' Chronicle (January): 31-32
'Kokke kandu' - virus disease of cardamom and its management
This new virus disease of cardamom is more destructive than other viruses affecting the crop, causing plantations in Karnataka to become economically unviable in 2 years. The disease is spread by aphids and is evident as clear lines on the leaf veins, reduction in size of tillers, panicles and fruits, and whorling of leaves and loosening of leaf sheaths. Measures to control disease spread in affected areas and to exclude infection from disease-free zones are indicated.
