Abstract:
The history of beet western yellows luteovirus (BWYV), the biology and epidemiology of this plant virus, the assays used for incidence assessment of BWYV, the presence of BWYV in vegetable and sugarbeet seed crops and associated weeds are all discussed with reference to the interactions within the beet western yellows pathosystem that cause risks to BWYV-susceptible crops in western Oregon, USA.
