First report of East African cassava mosaic virus-Uganda infecting the Nile tulip tree in Western Kenya
Plant Disease 103 (1), 164-164
Abstract: During 2017, Markhamia lutea plants (Nile tulip trees) growing in Kenya in a cassava field were observed with symptoms of mosaic, mottling, twisted leaves, and reduction in leaf surface area. The presence of East African cassava mosaic virus-Uganda was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants using PCR analysis and nucleotide sequencing.
