Spread of potato virus S

  • J. A. de Bokx
Short Communication


An experiment withEersteling (originally freed by meristem culture from PVX and PVS) andAlpha plants has been carried out in the field to study the spread of potato virus S. It was shown that depending on virus isolate, in a crop containing approximately 10% of plants with secondary infection, the primary infection inEersteling could rise to 56–76%, whereas that percentage inAlpha plants rose to 2–28 only. From the pattern of infected plants in was concluded that under field conditions in the Netherlands potato virus S is probably transmitted by contact.
