Ali, A., Abdalla, O., Bruton, B., Fish, W., Sikora, E., Zhang, S., and Taylor, M. 2012. Occurrence of viruses infecting watermelon, other cucurbits, and weeds in the parts of southern United States. Online. Plant Health Progress doi:10.1094/PHP-2012-0824-01-RS.
Table 1. Viruses that were tested by dot-immunobinding assay (DIBA) using their polyclonal antibodies or reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) using virus specific primers.
* Tested by RT-PCR using virus specific primers due to non-availability of virus antisera.
Table 2. Number of samples collected from cucurbits, other agricultural crops, and weeds in 10 states during the 2010 and 2011 growing seasons.
Other crops included eggplant, pepper, snap bean, soybean, sunflower, and tomato), while weeds contained devilís claw, groundcherry, morningglory, nightshade, Palmer amaranth, and ragweed (see Table 4).
Table 3. Frequency of known viruses in watermelon, other cucurbits, and weeds or agricultural crops in 10 states during the 2010 and 2011 growing seasons.*
* Alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV), Bean pod mottle virus (BPMV), Cucurbit aphid born yellows virus (CABYV), Cucurbit yellow stunting disorder virus (CYSDV), Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV), Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), Melon necrotic spot virus (MNSV), Papaya ringspot virus-W (PRSV-W), Squash leaf curl virus (SLCuV), Soybean mosaic virus (SMV), Squash mosaic virus (SqMV), Squash vein yellowing virus (SqVYV), Tobacco ringspot virus (TRSV), Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV), Watermelon silver mottle virus (WSMoV), Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV), and Zucchini green mottle mosaic virus (ZGMMV). None of the samples was positive for CGMMV, SqVYV, CYSDV, and ZGMMV. Samples include 6 cucumber, 26 cantaloupe, 46 pumpkin, 20 squash, 493 watermelon, 50 from six other crops (eggplant, pepper, snap bean, soybean, sunflower, and tomato), 74 from six weeds (devilís claw, groundcherry, morningglory, nightshade, Palmer amaranth, and ragweed) and were tested by dot-immunobinding assays (DIBA).
Table 4. Frequency of viruses in agricultural crops and weeds in two states during the 2010 and 2011 growing seasons.*
* No weeds samples were received from other states.The remaining viruses (CABYV, CGMMV, CYSDV, MNSV, SLCV, SMV, SqVYV, WMV, WSMoV, and ZGMMV) were not detected.

watermelon and other
* Potyviruses included PRSV-W, WMV-2, or ZYMV.
