Abstract

Six potato yellows diseases vis, marginal flavescence (MF), potato phyllody (PP), potato stolbur (stolbur), purple-top-roll (PTR), purple-top wilt (PTW) caused by aster yellows (AY) and witches’ broom (WB), have been found to be associated with mycoplasma-1ike organisms (MLOs) (2,24,18,10). Of these MF, PTR, PP and WB have been reported from India and have been found to be responsible for development of hairy sprouts (HS) in tubers (17,20). Though WB has universal distribution (37) PTW and stolbur have been recorded only from Australia, parts of Europe, Israel and the United States of America (14,23,36,38). Recently, PTR has also been reported from France and Israel (1, 38).
