WEBINAR: Controlling cucumber green mottle mosaic virus
March 17, 2021 By Greta Chiu
Date: April 29, 2021 – 2pm ET
Spread through mechanical contact, the cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) can lead to extensive yield losses. The results of this latest study show how a well-designed sanitization program of cleansers and disinfectants can completely eliminate CGMMV on greenhouse surfaces. Additional tests show how 15 different cucumber varieties performed when exposed to the virus.
