MWLMV Synonyms: maize dwarf ringspot virus, possibly maize white line virus
Causes severe mosaic and stunting of dent and sweet corn types of maize (Zea mays). Cobs do not fill out, are mis-shapen and contain few kernels. Yield losses range from 5 to 45% in infected fields. The disease seems to be associated with wet, poorly drained soils.
