Alfalfa Mosaic Virus
Alfamovirus AMV

Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type) L.)
Descriptor: Symptoms
Description: The most distinguishing symptom of alfalfa mosaic virus is a bright yellow mosaic of the affected leaves, however, not all strains of the virus produce this symptom. Chlorotic line patterns similar to the symptoms of tobacco ringspot are common. Chlorotic blotches and vein clearing of expanding leaves are often present. The virus overwinters in legumes and is transmitted to tobacco by aphids. AMV is found infrequently in burley.
