Abstract:

At present, soy bean mosaic disease, soy bean dwarfing disease, mosaic disease due to alfalfa mosaic virus, mosaic disease due to kidney bean yellow spot mosaic virus, and the bud blight disease due to tobacco ring spot virus are known as soy bean viruses. Of these, in Japan the two types, soy bean mosaic disease and soy bean dwarfing disease, are most widely spread and they cause the greatest damage. The mosaic disease due to the alfalfa mosaic disease, and the mosaic disease due to kidney bean yellow spot mosaic virus have less occurrences as compared with the former two types, and show less damage, too. The bud blight disease due to tobacco ring spot virus causes the least damage among soy bean viruses.
