Abstract:

Extensive surveys were conducted to determine the incidence and distribution of Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) infecting bell pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) between 2017- 2019 indifferent capsicum growing localities of Solan district in Himachal Pradesh. Symptoms on infected plants included mottling, mosaic, mid vein distortion, chlorotic spots, leaf deformation, puckering and stunting with disease incidence ranging between 9.3 to 71.3 percent. The identity of the causal virus was established on the basis of symptomatology and molecular assays. Primers designed against coat protein (CP) gene resulted in obtaining a desired amplicon of ~162 bp confirming the isolate to be of Cucumber mosaic virus.
