The virus complex causing swollen shoot disease of Cacao in West Africa



The virus complex causing swollen shoot disease of Cacao in West Africa



F.A.O. Plant Prot. Bull 8(6): 65-69



A study of over 100 W. African isolates of cacao swollen shoot virus showed that they differ in both type and severity of symptoms induced in cacao seedlings when derived from widely different areas, but differ only in severity when from the same locality. There is no information on the properties of the strs. that make up the swollen shoot complex in vitro and attempts to produce antisera have been unsuccessful.
