Potato Virus Y (PVY)
Rapid CDIATM Potato Virus Y (PVY) kits are intended for the detection of PVY in infected potato leaves, tuber eyes, sprouts, and stems and other host plants.
PVY is one of the most prevalent and important viruses in potatoes, which causes significant yield losses. It is transmitted mechanically and by aphids in a non-persistent manner. The best strategy to control PVY is to use seed potatoes certified to have low virus content.
