What is it about?

Yellow dwarf viruses (YDVs) are economically destructive viral diseases of cereal crops, which cause the reduction of harvested yield and quality of grains. Up to now the identification of such viruses was limited to monocotyledonous Poaceae weed hosts, and was not investigated in dicotyledons. Therefore this study is significant for the presence of new hosts on dicotyledonous of BYDVs.

Why is it important?

This is the first report of Geranium dissectum and Juncus compressus as possible plant hosts of BYDV-PAV and BYDV-MAV.


BYDVs are economically important viruses of cereal species. The results obtained in this article are very significant as the reservoir hosts of BYDVs. I hope that it will very useful for the researcher who is interested in for the plant virologist.
