Over the past 10 years, several commercial producers of black raspberry in Ohio have experienced a decline in plant vigor and survival in their plantings. In 2004, a survey of several black and red raspberry plantings in Ohio was conducted to determine if viruses were present. Of the 115 samples taken in the survey, Raspberry bushy dwarf (RBDV), Tomato ringspot (ToRSV), and Tobacco ringspot virus (TRSV) were detected in 21, 5, and 2, respectively. This is the first report of RBDV in Ohio.
