Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus (CGMMV)
Rapid CDIATM Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus (CGMMV) kits are intended for the detection of CGMMV in infected cucurbit plants.
Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) has a narrow host range which is primarily limited to cucurbit species, the damage it causes to the host plant and fruit can be extensive, resulting in substantial yield losses. Therefore, it is an important threat to fresh market, export and cucurbit seed industries. The virus is easily sap and seed transmissible, and it survives for long periods in infected crop debris. CGMMV symptoms (mottling and mosaic on leaves, fruit mottling and distortion) can be confused with those caused by many other cucurbit viruses, making diagnosis based exclusively on visual symptoms unreliable.
