Abstract
Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) is worldwide in distribution, especially in temperate regions. The host range is wide; species in More Than 40 dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous £families are susceptible to infection (Price, 1940). In addition, CMV, is transmissible by more <than 60 species of aphids (Kennedy, Day and Eastop, 1962), many of which occur in Bats Africa. Lt is therefore surprising, ~hat during the course of 'extensive surveys for Virus diseases, conductedted in many parts of East Africa, we have isolated CMV on only two occasions.
