Spread of rugose mosaic and leaf roll in different varieties of potatoes in the plains of West Bengal

  • H. C. Choudhuri


During the first two years there were no visible symptoms of rugose mosaic and leaf roll viruses. There were progressive increases of these viruses from the third cropping season of the experiment. Wide variation of susceptibility in varieties to leaf roll and rugose mosaic were noted. Some varieties showed some resistance to the viruses.
