Abstract

A disease of groundnut characterized by stunting, downward rolling, mottling, general chlorosis and reduced leaflet size occurred in the Sudan. During 1992-94, surveys showed that the disease was restricted to irrigated groundnut crops grown between the 2 Niles. The viral causal agent had slightly flexuous filamentous particles (626 nm long) and was transmitted by whiteflies. It was identified serologically as cowpea mild mottle carlavirus (CPMMV). This appears to be the first record of natural occurrence of CPMMV on groundnut in the Sudan.
