ABSTRACT

Ten varieties / lines of potato germplasm were screened out against PVX to find the resistant source. Out of 10, four varieties were susceptible, three moderately susceptible and three were moderately resistant. DAS-ELISA detected the PVX in leaves samples of different Potato varieties. Mechanical transmission produced the local lesion and insect transmission through aphid (Myzus Persicae) was failed due to unknown reasons.
