WEBINAR| Controlling cucumber green mottle mosaic virus

Spread through mechanical contact, the cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) can lead to extensive yield losses. The results of this latest study show how a well-designed sanitization program of cleansers and disinfectants can completely eliminate CGMMV on greenhouse surfaces. Additional tests show how 15 different cucumber varieties performed when exposed to the virus.
