Info on C. juncea and S. aculeata

Wed Nov 11 17:02:52 EST 1992

We have currently some plants of the species Crotalaria juncea
and Sesbania aculeata in the greenhouse (two seed trays).
Almost all of the plants of C. juncea display some virus-like
symptoms: Chlorosis, calico, mottling, flecking. Few plants of
S. aculeata display some necrotic spots on the leave blades.

Do these symptoms look familiar to anybody (nutrient deficiency,
virus, viroids, MLOs etc., seed transmission of these agents)?

Thanks for an answer in advance.
