Host range of an Iranian isolate of Watermelon chlorotic stunt virus as determined by whitefly-mediated inoculation and agroinfection, and its geographical distribution



Host range of an Iranian isolate of Watermelon chlorotic stunt virus as determined by whitefly-mediated inoculation and agroinfection, and its geographical distribution



Journal of Phytopathology 150(8/9): 423-430



Virus-like symptoms appeared on most watermelon plants grown at different locations in southern provinces of Iran. The symptoms included chlorotic patches on leaves, vein yellowing and stunting of watermelon plants. The causal agent of watermelon chlorotic stunt disease was transmitted to healthy watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris Charleston Grey), jimsonweed (Datura stramonium) and bean (Phaseolus vulgaris Top-Crop) by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci, but not by sap inoculation.
