Bean virus 1
May show a reddish rugose mosaic in lower leaves, a rolling or curling mosaic with dark green areas along the main veins in the upper leaves and mottled or malformed pods. Severe stunting and black-root symptoms occur with typical strains at temperatures above 30°C (86°F) and with virulent strains at 20°C (68°F)and above; the vascular necrosis often extends into surrounding stems and pods or leaves.
React with necrotic local lesions at normal temperatures and with black-root symptoms at high temperature; this type of reaction gives field resistance, is genetically dominant and is derived from the cultivar Corbett Refugee.
Control of bean common mosaic virus includes the use of resistant seed varieties and buying seeds from reputable sources. Controlling the population of aphids near beans also helps to reduce chances of virus in bean plants.
