Host: Jatropha gossypiifolia L. (Chandrajyot)Disease name: Jatropha mosaic Pathogen: Croton yellow vein mosaic virus
Jatropha gossypiifolia, of the family Euphorbiaceae, commonly grows along roadsides and railway tracks and in barren and agricultural fields worldwide. Diseased plants exhibit a yellow mosaic, mild leaf curl, leaf deformation, and vein swelling accompanied by reduction in leaf size and height of the plants. The disease is transmitted by the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Genn.).
Croton yellow vein mosaic virus belongs to the genus Begomovirus, family Geminiviridae. The association of CYVMV and its DNA β satellite molecule with yellow mosaic disease of J. gossypiifolia may be considered a serious threat to the cultivation of other economically important crop plants. Infected plants must be uprooted and burned.
