First report of Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus in cucurbits in Georgia, United States.

Abstract

This study for the first time provides evidence for the presence of Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus (CYSDV) in Georgia. Thus, three whitefly-transmitted cucurbit-infecting viruses are now known in the state. Future research is required to evaluate the host range of CYSDV and its economic impact on cucurbit production in Georgia.
