FIELD PEA VIRUSES

Alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV): Chlorosis in new shoots, necrotic spots on leaves and streaking, necrosis of new or old leaves.

Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV): Chlorosis and yellow tips, (Figure 10.6).

Bean yellow mosaic virus (BYMV): Symptoms can be variable. In some cases the virus may be symptomless or there can be mosaic symptoms, leaf deformation, severe stunting of the plant and premature senescence.

Pea seed-borne mosaic virus (PSbMV): In some cases the virus may show no symptoms or there may be downward curling of leaves and mild to severe plant stunting. The infected plants may produce seeds having brown marks or ringspots, (Figure 10.7).

Beet western yellows virus (BWYV): Stunting and yellowing of plants, (Figure 10.8).
