Cereal Viruses of Importance in Montana

Abstract: There are several economically important viruses in Montana cereal grain crops. The principal virus causing disease is wheat streak mosaic virus. However, there are additional mite-transmitted viruses, aphid-transmitted viruses, and soilborne viruses that may be important. The purpose of this publication is to describe 1) the principle viruses of importance in cereal crops in Montana, 2) how to recognize virus-infected plants, 3) how viruses move from plant to plant, and 4) how to manage them.
