Maize dwarf mosaic virus (MDMV), detected for the first time in Michigan, was identified by host and serologic reactions. It reacted only with antiserum to strain B and produced characteristic symptoms in Golden Bantam and NK 199 sweet corn; SDP2 and OH28 dent corn inbreds; and Atlas, Rio, and Sart sorghum, but not in johnsongrass or Michigan Amber, Monon, and Little Club wheats.
