Cowpea Mild Mottle in groundnut

Cowpea Mild Mottle (CMMV)

Cowpea mild mottle


Infected plants are conspicuous by the outward rolling of their leaflet edges and severe stunting. Younger leaflets often show vein banding and older leaflets may dry. The incidence of CMMV can be as high as 30% if sown adjacent to infected soybean and/or cowpea, two highly susceptible crops.So avoid growing groundnut near such cropped fields.
