Improved management options for cucumber green mottle mosaic virus
The key research areas of the project Improved management options for cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (VG15013) are to:
- Determine the importance of weed and non-hosts of CGMMV in disease epidemiology
- Examine the potential for in-field diagnostics to assist rapid detection of the virus on farms known/ suspected to be infected with CGMMV
- Develop multilingual communication and extension materials to assist with management options to cucurbit growers including on-farm biosecurity protocols.
This project has been funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia using vegetable industry levy and funds from the Australian Government.
