Detection of Potato virus Y

Potato fieldPotato Virus Y is a plant virus from Potyvirus family. Generally, it infects plants of Solenaceae family as potato, tomato, tobacco and pepper. PVY is the main disease that infects potato crops. Infected seeds are smaller, embossed and light green to dark green mottled.

The virus PVY is transmitted by aphids. It can be acquired from the infected plant by contact within seconds, and transmitted to a healthy plant just as fast. This transmission process is called “non-persistent”.

There is different strains of PVY : PVY-o which is the common strain and causes mosaic symptoms, PVY-c recognizable thanks to its stipple streak and PVY-n, the necrotic strain, generally causes mild foliage symptoms, but necrosis in the leaves of susceptible potato varieties.
