Monroe Bean as a Local Lesion Host for Bean Common Mosaic Virus. A. W. Saettler, Research Plant Pathologist, Plant Science Research Division, ARS, USDA, Michigan State University, East Lansing 48823; G. E. Trujillo, Graduate Assistant, Department of Botany and Plant Pathology, Michigan State University, East Lansing 48823. Phytopathology 62:489-490. DOI: 10.1094/Phyto-62-489.

Production of local lesions by bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) on mechanically inoculated primary leaves of Monroe bean is reported for the first time. The lesions are consistently produced under normal greenhouse conditions by the type strain as well as the New York 15 and B strains of the virus, and appear to be different from lesions reported previously for BCMV.
