The disease was reported first in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu during 1966. The disease significantly reduces stem girth and yield. Tuber splitting is also observed. The primary spread of the disease is through infected planting materials and secondary spread is by an insect vector, white fly (Bemisia tabaci Genn.), in the field in a persistent manner. The use of disease-free cuttings and elimination of the chance of infection through insect vectors are the main principles of management of this disease.
