Abstract

Glasshouse is an essential requirement for plant virology works. The purpose of the glasshouse is to provide a regulated and controlled environment for maintenance of virus-free and virus-infected plants and propagation of virus in susceptible hosts and to carry out transmission experiments under insect-proof conditions. This chapter provides information on some basic requirements and precautions essential for every plant virus worker to raise and maintain healthy nursery and virus cultures to carry out experiments under regulated environment and to prevent contamination.
