WHAT ARE MOSAIC VIRUSES?

  • "Mosaic viruses are plant viruses that cause the leaves to have a speckled appearance." -wiki

HOW TO IDENTIFY MOSAIC VIRUSES AND DAMAGE: 

  • Yellow, white or green spots on foliage
  • Wrinkled or curled leaves
  • Yellowing of veins in leaves
  • Reduced yields or stunted growth
  • "Warty", or mottled fruit 

HOW TO CONTROL & PREVENT MOSAIC VIRUSES:

  • There is NO CURE for the Mosaic Virus. Once it infects a plant, there is no saving it.
  • Your best course of action is to remove the entire plant completely, and destroy it.
  • Be sure to clean and disinfect any garden tools used during the clean-out.
  • Plant strong, disease resistant varieties.
  • Cover your plants with floating-row covers to keep insects away.
  • Control your weeds. Some can serve as hosts for the virus.

VARIETIES MOST COMMONLY AFFECTED ARE: Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Squash and Cauliflower
