Plant viruses in European Agriculture: Current problems and future aspects

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Plant viruses are an important group of plant pathogens in agriculture worldwide. In Europe, they cause considerable economic damage in different crops including vegetables, grains, and ornamentals.
