Abstract
Whitefly-transmitted geminiviruses are a major constraint on the production of some vegetable crops in Jamaica. In an attempt to control the disease caused by these viruses the characterization of casual agents of each disease was investigated. Based on this research control strategies were implemented. Bean golden yellow mosaic virus (BGYMV) was found infecting red peas and broad beans. Two geminivirus were found infecting tomato and scotch bonnet pepper, Tomato dwarf leaf curl virus (TDLCV) and Tomato leaf curl virus (TYLCV). TYLCV alone or with TDLCV causes the “jherri curl” disease in tomato. Cabbage plants were infected with cabbage leaf curl virus (CabLCV). A geminivirus was also detected in papaya plants. Geminivirus were also detected in many common weeds including Sida (broomweed), Macroptilium lathyroides, Wissadula amplissaima, Rhynchosia minima, Euphorbia heterphylla (milkweed), A butilon americanum and two Jatropha spp. The viruses infecting the weeds and crops were distinct in most cases. Control strategies implemented for these geminiviruses include planting resistant cultivars, developing transgenic plants resistant to TYLCV and recommending the appropriate insecticide to be used for controlling the whiteflies.....
