Abstract:
Strawberries are unique with highly desirable taste and flavour and are also an excellent source of vitamins, potassium, fiber and sugars. Field surveys were conducted to record the incidence of strawberry viruses in Shimla and Solan districts of Himachal Pradesh during 2017-18. Around 77 entries were surveyed from Shimla and Solan districts. Results revealed that the incidence of virus diseases ranged between 6.00 percent to 34.32 percent in strawberry germplasm. The characteristic symptoms observed were puckering, necrotic rings, ring spots, marginal necrosis, reddening of leaves, oak leaf pattern, leaf deformation and small sized misshapen fruits.
