Abstract:

Mesta (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is an important commercial fibre crop after cotton and jute, which belong to the family Malvaceae. The crop is mainly grown for a green leafy vegetable purpose in North Karnataka, India. Mesta crop is being affected by many diseases of which leaf curl disease caused by Begomovirus is a main constraint in its production. The disease is observed to be transmitted by different means mainly by whitefly (B. tabaci), dodder (Cuscuta sp.), grafting and sap. Similarly minimum 10 min of Acquisition Access Period (AAP) and Inoculation Access Period (IAP) is required for the disease transmission and exhibits the disease symptoms. Infected plants exhibited the characteristic symptoms of leaf curl disease as exhibits under natural conditions.
