Etiology of sweet potato chlorotic dwarf disease in Argentina
Plant Disease 84 (1), 35-39
Abstract: Chlorotic dwarf (CD), the most important disease in the sweet potato-producing regions of Argentina, is caused by the synergistic combination of two aphid-transmitted potyviruses with a whitefly-transmitted crinivirus. Sweet potato feathery mottle virus, sweet potato mild speckling virus, and a crinivirus (serologically related to sweet potato chlorotic stunt virus) were associated with CD. The synergistic combination of these three viruses reproduced the disease.
