Abstract

An important disease of groundnuts in India has recently been shown to be caused by tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), which is transmitted by thrips. The results are given of further studies on Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood (which had earlier been shown to be a vector), on the role of Frankliniella schultzei (Tryb.) as a vector and on the application of the haemagglutination technique to detect viral antigen in thrips. Both species of thrips were able to transmit the virus from groundnuts to groundnuts and urd bean (Vigna mungo), but F. schultzei was the more efficient. Haemagglutination tests detected viral antigens in extracts from both species that had been exposed to infected leaves
