Citation : Dookun-Saumtally, A.; Saumtally, S.; Parmessur, Y.; Joomun, N.; Aljanabi, S.; Phytoplasmas infecting sugarcane; 2008
Abstract : Phytoplasmas are associated with plant yellows diseases in several hundred crop species. They are transmitted by insect vectors, and through vegetative propagation of tubers, cuttings, bulbs and rhizomes. They cannot be cultured in vitro, thus their diagnosis and characterization was hindered for a long time. A number of diagnostic tests including monoclonal antibodies, DNA probes, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) are currently available and are more precise for their identification and characterization. In sugar cane, five diseases have been associated with phytoplasmas. These consist of white leaf, leaf yellows, grassy shoot, green grassy shoot and Ramu stunt. In this chapter, the phytoplasma diseases affecting sugar cane are described, along with methods for their identification and management
