Occurence of beet western yellows virus on squash and broad bean in Turkey

Vegetable crops species from areas of Turkey where beet western yellows virus (BWYV), genus Polerovirus, family Luteoviridae was previously detected in pepper were surveyed for poleroviruses. Leaf samples were tested by DAS-ELISA, RT-PCR with degenerate primers for poleroviruses, and sequencing. Blast analysis of sequenced PCR amplicons revealed the presence of BWYV in broad bean (Vicia faba) and squash (Cucurbita pepo). These are new records of this virus on these two species in Turkey.
