At the Institute for Agricultural Technology and Sugar Industry, Technical College, Brunswick, Germany, density gradient centrifugation in sucrose solutions proved to be an effective method for the separation of sugar beet yellows virus from the normal constituents of leaf homogenates of Tetragonia expansa and Chenopodium foliarum. The virus was shown by tests on Nicotiana quadrivalvis to have lost virtually nothing of its serological activity as a result of the treatment.
