First report of Iris yellow spot virus infecting onion in Kenya and Uganda
Plant Disease 95 (9), 1195-1195
Abstract: During 2009, onion (Allium cepa) plants grown in Kenya and Uganda were observed with symptoms of spindle-shaped, straw-colored, irregular chlorotic lesions with occasional green islands on the leaves. The presence of Iris yellow spot virus was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using specific antisera, PCR analysis and nucleotide sequencing.
