Abstract

Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) was first reported in India in tomato in 1964 (Todd et dl., 1975). The occurrence of TSWV on a legume in ~India was first recorded in 1968 (Reddy et dl., 1968). The "bud necrosis disease" of groundnut, caused by TSWV, is now considered to be one of the most damaging groundnut diseases in India (Ghanekar et al., 1979a; Reddy, 1980). Bud necrosis is likely to have been present in India for some time although it has only recently become economically important. TSWV has also been reported on groundnuts in Brazil (Costa, 1941), the United States of America (Halliwell & Philley, 1974), South Africa (Klesser, 1966) and Australia (Helms et al., 1961). This chapter considers the epidemiology and control of bud necrosis and gives a brief account of other economically important diseases of legumes in India caused by TSWV.
