Brief

To determine the current incidence of Soybean yellow mottle mosaic virus (SYMMV), Soybean yellow common mosaic virus (SYCMV), and Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) in Korea, a nationwide survey was performed in 2013. A total of 417 soybean samples with typical virus symptoms were collected from 9 large-scale soybean-cultivated areas. To identify viruses from the collected samples, RT-PCR was performed using specific primers for SMV, SYMMV, or SYCMV. To confirm the RT-PCR results, PCR products were purified and sequenced.
