Your email did not appear valid.  I'll try here.

It would help to know what you are trying to do in your characterization.  I
presume you wish to make a diagnosis.  It would help to know what plant(s)?
What symptoms?  What size is the DNA?  How many species/bands?  An obvious
approach would be to clone it...sequence it and compare the sequence to
other plant viruses.  Doing some antibody characterization using antisera
from likely groups might be useful as well.
