BaMMV - Barley mild mosaic virus

Family: Potyviridae
Genus: Bymovirus
 
Acronym: BaMMV

BaMMV Synonyms:

Barley mild mosaic virus is one of two agents (the other is barley yellow mosaic virus) responsible for yellow mosaic disease of barley. Both viruses are transmitted in soil by the plasmodiophorid fungus Polymyxa graminis. The viruses occur, either separately or together, in autumn-sown barley and cause similar symptoms. Affected fields show yellow patches or appear entirely yellow, depending on the distribution of infested soil.

Barley mild mosaic virus is one of two agents (the other is barley yellow mosaic virus) responsible for yellow mosaic disease of barley. Both viruses are transmitted in soil by the plasmodiophorid fungus Polymyxa graminis. The viruses occur, either separately or together, in autumn-sown barley and cause similar symptoms. Affected fields show yellow patches or appear entirely yellow, depending on the distribution of infested soil.

The initial symptoms are irregularly distributed chlorotic streaks of varying size on the youngest emerging leaves, often associated with upward rolling of leaf margins. The streaks are most distinct on the youngest leaves, and develop into a mosaic pattern. The mosaic symptoms are occasionally associated with necrotic patches, yellow discoloration, and/or rapid death of the older leaves. The symptoms on leaves appear in early spring but tend to disappear as the weather becomes warmer.
