Abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows:

Virus yellows disease of sugarbeet is caused by a complex of aphid transmitted viruses. The three most important components of this complex in California are beet yellows virus (BYV), beet western yellows virus (BWYV), and beet mosaic virus. Each component is distinct and has unique virus particle structure, vector characteristics, and host range.
