Abstract

Barley yellow dwarf virus has been detected in maize by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and by immunospecific electron microscopy (ISEM). Samples of maize collected in September 1988, 1989 and 1990 showed that this crop is an important reservoir of BYDV; MAV-like isolates were the most common although PAV-like and RPV-like isolates were also present. Earlier research in Spain had shown that PAV-like isolates were predominant. Thus the evidence from this work that MAV was the main isolate, and very widely spread, is important for future research on BYDV epidemiology in Spain.
