First report of Plantago asiatica mosaic virus in lily hybrids in China.

Abstract

In the winter of 2015, severe leaf necrotic streaking was observed on plants of an Asiatic hybrid lily (Asiatic Tiny Padhye) in the greenhouse of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (Beijing, China). The causal pathogen was identified as Plantago asiatica mosaic virus (PlAMV) based on molecular and pathogenicity analyses. This is thought to be the first report of PlAMV in lily hybrids in China.
