Emerging threats of begomoviruses to the cultivation of medicinal and aromatic crops and their management strategies

Review Article


Begomoviruses (family Geminiviridae) are responsible for extreme yield reduction in a number of economically important crops including medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs). Emergence of new variants of viruses due to recombination and mutations in the genomes, modern cropping systems, introduction of susceptible plant varieties, global trade in agricultural products, and changes in climatic conditions are responsible for aggravating the begomovirus problems during the last two decades. This review summaries the current research work on begomoviruses affecting MAPs and provides various traditional and advanced strategies for the management of begomoviruses and vector in MAPs.
