Carrot diseases resulting from phytoplasmas and viruses.

Among several bacteria-like organisms and virus-induced diseases observed in association with diseased plants in the carrot family (Apiaceae), those that consistently appear to be particularly harmful are referenced in this chapter. These include aster yellows phytoplasmas ('Candidatus Phytoplasma asteris'), beet leaf hopper-transmitted virescence agent phytoplasma ('Candidatus Phytoplasma trifolii'), Carrot virus Y, Carrot thin leaf virus and Celery mosaic virus. Information is given on disease symptoms, ecology (including insect vectors) and management strategies.
