Viruses

While there are several viruses that can affect strawberry yield and plant health, of most important are those vectored by whiteflies. Pallidosis-related decline, caused by Strawberry pallidosis associated virus (SPaV) or Beet pseudo yellows virus (BPYV) can cause severe declines in fruit production, and root systems are often compromised. 

Control of the vector is the most effective method of reducing the spread of the pallidosis-related declines.
