Symptom of ChiVMV
AVRDC is inviting
interested partners to test pepper germplasm that is resistant
to eight isolates of chilli veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV) present
in Taiwan. Some of these lines also provide resistance to ChiVMV
strains in Thailand, India and Indonesia.
ChiVMV is one
of the most predominant viruses of peppers in Asia. Our surveys
in 16 Asian countries have shown that 30% of pepper crops are
affected by this disease. The virus significantly reduces
yields, with yield losses at AVRDC ranging from 55-95% in sweet
pepper and from 9-74% in chili pepper trials.
partner will receive seed samples (100 seeds) of nine lines
resistant to all Taiwan ChiVMV strains, and one susceptible
check. Please note that the materials may not possess other
horticultural traits of your interest.
