M. Samuitiene, M. Navalinskiene, S. G. Eid, and H. R. Pappu

March 2009

Brief

In recent years, field floriculture development in Lithuania has been given increased attention particularly for the benefit of small family farms that produce seedlings of perennial ornamentals for the domestic market and for export to the neighboring countries. To better understand the incidence and diversity of caulimoviruses recently reported in dahlia, the authors further investigated new Lithuanian dahlia cultivars for the presence of various caulimoviruses using species-specific primers and polymerase chain reaction.
