Radish (Raphanus sativus L.) is an important vegetable crop worldwide, occupying the second largest area of all vegetables in China . Farmers tend to select the best cultivar, and therefore, there are only a few cultivars in production . However, continuous cultivation and ecological changes have led to increasing severity of radish viral diseases . Turnip mosaic virus (TuMV), cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), and radish mosaic virus (RaMV) are the main viruses of radish plants in China .
TuMV causes crop losses worldwide [5, 6], including in most regions of China ; it has a wide host range, infecting 318 species of 156 genera of 43 families, with the most susceptible hosts being members of the family Brassicaceae [8, 9]. It is second in importance only to CMV in vegetable crops in 28 countries or regions , and it is the most important virus of cruciferous vegetables in Asia, including radish in China . Infected crops may show mosaic, mottle, leaf malformation, and...
