Good control can be achieved by planting disease free (tested) seed and controlling aphid vectors on plants will reduce any spread of the virus in the field.
PSbMV affects a range of plants including peas, lentils and faba beans. Symptoms include abnormal colouring and patterns on leaves, as well as whole plant dwarfing.
We can also test the plant material as well for Pea seed borne mosaic virus for £135 + VAT per sample.
When sending plant pathogens and invertebrate samples from outside England and Wales for testing please email the Crop health team (email@example.com) who will issue you with the relevant Letter of Authority to ensure your samples are not delayed upon entry to the UK.
