Several virus diseases of groundnut occur in the Semi-Arid Tropics (RAT) (Chohan 1974; Feakin 1973; lizuka et al. 1979; McDonald and Raheja 1980) and some are economically important (Gibbons 1977; lizuka et al. 1979). Peanut mottle virus (PMV) is the most widespread (Reddy et al. 1978) and can cause considerable yield losses (Kuhn and Demski 1975). Other economically important virus diseases have more restricted distributions. For instance, groundnut rosette is important in Africa, south of the Sahara (Gibbons 1977; Gillier 1978; Rossel 1977; Yayock et al. 1976); peanut clump (PCV) in West Africa (Trochain 1931; Bouhot 1967; Germani et al. 1975) and in India (Reddy et al. 1979); bud necrosis (caused by tomato spotted wilt virus- TSWV) in India (Ghanekar et al. 1979); and witches' broom (a disease associated with mycoplasma-like organisms) in Southeast Asia (lizuka, personal communication).
